A Leaf’s Life (poem)

Updated on November 2, 2012

Another leaf begins to fall

Its time to dance for one and all

Its time to answer nature’s call

And when its gone will they recall


The tree of life has let it go

So the leaf may have its show

Its special time within the flow

A purpose only it may know


What wondrous prospect starts its fall

The world awaits to see its show

A blissful breeze to bless its flow

In beauty grace they’ll long recall


This chance to live or just let go

To add some Joy to it and all

And gladly flutter to the call

That memory of leaf they’ll know


So grand a dance they’ll long recall

Leaf gladly answers greater call

And as it bid farewell to all

Another leaf begins to fall

      Beautiful poem, the falling leaf, the letting go...and finding purpose, fluttering, memory. And the dancing leaves in breeze is such a quietly lovely scene. I love leaves, their mystery and your grand poem!

      You are so talented. I love the relationship you have described between nature, the leaf, and man. Ours lives are as such, made for a purpose. Love the video, it is beautifully illustrated.

      The beautiful life as a leaf. This was thought out well and sure sounds like what a leaf would reply to life.

      Hi Mhatter,

      Autumn seems to makes us more introspective and inspires our creativity. I really enjoyed your perspective as expressed through your beautiful poem. :)

      Hi Martin.

      Everything on earth has a form of life. The leaf is with us for six or seven months then the tree lets it go , just as we humans do.

      A beautiful poem and if I may, will share it with my friends on Twitter.

      Have a good weekend.

      The old, dried out, and shaky tend to fall and make way for the new. Leaves do it to! : )
