Leaves And Butterflies


Thousands,
Of leaves.
Blowing by,
On the north wind.
Rolling,
On the streets,
Flitting,
On the grass.
Thousands,
Of colors.
Reds, yellows, browns,
Myriads of each.
Returning,
To the Earth.
Thousands,
Of butterflies,
Blowing by.
On the north wind.
Loafing,
On the streets,
Flitting on the grass.
Thousands,
Of colors.
Blacks, blues, oranges.
Myriads, of each.
Chasing leaves.
As they return,
To the Earth.
Glorious Fall.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
