The Leaf



Here's a leaf for inspiration
I picked up off the ground
Was there for the song
Of phoebe and the vireo
Green all summer long
But soon found its place
The leaf on the ground
Why should I pick it up?
Did paws ever touch it?
Was it covered with raindrops?
Under the morning sun
Held to the light
And I left the leaf
There on the ground
Where it will fade
Gently and peacefully
