Fall’s Last Call
Mighty winds whisper out loud for everyone to hear
“it time for all of you to leave, my dears”
the earth prepares for the great gathering
and formed is a colorful mosaic
the crimson’s restlessly await their destination
Will it be bunched up in a brown paper bag?
Or will someone blow them back under their tree of origin?
Will it rain and the weight press down and make them stick to each other ?
Or will an early snow fall freeze them until the spring thaw?
One last ivy leaf was painted on a wall
to save Johnsy’s life one windy fall
Fall’s last call can be very sad
but the beauty of its bright colors
delight the site and make us glad.
