Watch Green Leaves

It is lovely to watch green leaves
The miracle of God has to be believed
Tree so barren gets fresh outlets
Tree was to be felled with regret

Why sudden lease of fresh breath
The time was near for shot sure death
Yet it has shown some sign of continuity
Life can be restored to its original quality

Human body thrives little longer
Medicines and food make it stronger
It can last some more years
Even though there is unknown fear

What happens when face turns pale?
All worries rush on face like fresh tale
Some change has taken place inside
Can’t be hold and difficult to confide

It is final warning to say good bye
Nothing may help even desperate try
Life is to be given up at the last
The changes may take very fast

Every object on earth has to perish
It has warranty and date to finish
However we may never ill wish or expect to end
It has to be parted with good bye to friends

It is difficult to get detached
We are emotionally attached
Little separation gives us pain with gloom
There is no choice, enough space or room

You can read worry lines
The face is marred by yellow signs
No one knows when leaf may fall down
With little swing from air it will be blown

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
