The Leaf

The Leaf

A Poem by lawrence bear
"

The life of a simple leaf

"


The leaf

 

How beautiful it is,

So colourful

Bright

Alive

Brilliant

Loving

And charming

 

The leaf

 

Opens its lungs,

So a tree can breathe

Exhales

So we may live

 

The leaf

 

First green

To yellow

Then orange

Red

Rusty brown

 

The leaf

 

Not only,

Crumples and dies.

But fertilizes

Mother earth

 

The leaf

 

Reborn

Every spring

To remind us

How lovely

Energetic

Bright

Loving

It can be

 

The leaf

such a delightful

little thing

I was outside this morning admiring the colors of autumn. This poem just came to mind, as I tried to write it as a song, a song for autumn :)
But I hope you enjoyed it as I tried to describe from my eyes and soul.

The leaf, could here you speak, and breath the oxygen, I think within these words, of love for nature. It was an ode to the leaves, of the trees, as they are probably fallen all by now, to be reborn in spring, when I shall re read this... as all in nature repeat itself... Wonderful

Reading this it reawakens how meaningful the leaf actually is... Its refreshing.
Great read.

Autumn may be my favorite time of the year, mainly just for this reason. The beauty of the leaves are amazing, even though they are so simple. The adjectives and descriptions you used to describe them were vivid and very well put. This is a very well-crafted poem with a beautiful message. Great job.

Your words are true. Mother Nature closes and open doors for us. Teaches us to appreciate death and life. I like your positive description of the leaf. Nature give us so much. Need to open our eyes to be thankful for the gifts of Nature. Thank you for a outstanding poem.

This is beautiful. Check this stanza:

First green
To yellow
Than orange (check the word than? I'm not sure, but it might need to be then? I could be wrong, but something is tickling in the back of my head) :)
Red
Rusty brown
