Poem: Leaf in the Wind

Grown on a tree,

the leaf does sway.

~

A current of wind comes,

and pulls it away.

~

It swirls from the tree.

Dances in the air.

~

Spins on the gust,

high, light, and fair.

~

It passes a bird,

topples over a tree.

~

Surveys a hill,

far down to see.

~

Then the wind continues on,

drops the leaf from its hold.

~

Down it goes, fluttered,

spinned, and rolled.

~

A final breath of wind catches it,

and safely sets it down.

~

It rests in the tall grass,

now earthbound.
