The Last Leaf

The Last Leaf

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Alone

Lonely

All others

have gone

before

You stand out

now

like a single shell

on a sandy

shore

Appreciation

for you

never warmer

Your noble tenacity

rules

Eventually

you

too

must

leave

And to argue

this

would make you

a fool!

“To everything there is a season…”  Ecclesiastes 3:1

This lonely leaf is from one of our magnolia trees.  And, yes, it was the last leaf of this tree.  It fell that evening.
