If I Were A Leaf.

If I were a leaf,
I want to be blown away into the sky,
Breath the air that comes from my home.

If I were a leaf,
I want to be attached on the cover of the envelope
sending to my mum,
Then she will see my name at the first sight of the letter.

If I were a leaf,
I want to be put on the nose of a pure girl.
Cause it is just like the oil painting hanging on my wall.

If I were a leaf,
I want to be picked up by an old man,
As his bending over reminds me of my grandpa.

If I were a leaf,
I want to hide in the pumpkin field,
My grandma liked to plant them and give the huge pumpkins away to her old friends.

If I were a leaf,
I want to be collected in my favourite book,
That time I could bathe in my thought deeply.

If I were a leaf,
I want to grow up,
Beacause nature takes its course.
So do I.

Make me a leaf,
then blow me home.

    Wow
    Sweet and touching

    someone put a second A in Beacause. i'm pretty sure it is a typo. i like the poem. if i were a twig, i might want you on me.
    this is a nice poem of memories. i especially enjoyed:
    If I were a leaf,
    I want to grow up,
    Beacause nature takes its course.
    So do I.

    but what does a leaf grow up to be but a larger leaf, .....or compost? i'll add this to my poemlist. thanks for
    sharing.

    If I were a leaf,
    I want the worm on me soon leave!
    If I were a leaf,
    I want your poem printed on me as an eternal piece.

    Smile!

    It is quite good. I could envision it well.

  • Naida Nepascua Supnet (9/12/2011 8:12:00 AM)

    make me a leaf then blow me home-this line is my most favorite in this poem.
    also the poem reflects you as a person where your compassion is very evident.
    your love to nature, your family members and your home shows how good a person you are.
