Falling Leaves (Leaves Me Pondering) - Poem by Smoky Hoss

Little orange leaves
Gathered and quaking,
Upon the tree
The wind is shaking -
Where will you go, oh little ones
When you fall?
- I was hoping you'd take me with you
To the realm beyond it all -

There is a dream in my soul,
Of such far away places to go;
Where all the fallen leaves
Return to the original trees;
Where the questions of autumn
Are finally understood,
And we come to see
In the end, all is good.

    Rest awhile on a pile
    of leaves and close your eyes
    and dream the dream they all must dream
    of flying to the skies.
