Leaf


The stillness of the wind
Is all around
As I walk along
This stretch of sand

Oh! how I am amazed
A beauty so grand
As I stood and gazed
This majestic land

I knelt and picked
A leaf in hand
And it was simply luck
That it's here I find

As I stood and think
Of her somewhere
In this leaf, it sinks
My true feelings for her

If I can write truly
A poem in this leaf
What a bonfire of poetry!
I can send, lovingly

As I turn around
And the leaf I threw
It was left to the wind
And to nature's foe

A leaf that brings
The really best in me
And in my heart I knew
She's a past, but oh! so true...

    This is a beautiful turn of words:

    I knelt and picked
    A leaf in hand
    And it was simply luck
    That it's here I find

    The whole poem feels like a lovely walk in the woods, reflecting on a past that is not so painful, but still somewhat sorrowful. And this is nice:

    A leaf that brings
    The really best in me...

    Nature can have such a soothing effect. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
