Falling Leaves...


The leaves are green,
floating on trees,
whirling and winding,
dancing with glee.
But,the earthly nature,
wishes to groan,
sprawling autumn has
neared so soon,

Leaves all lush,have started
losing flutter,
falling with moan,
turning to red,pale and dry,
without any envious sigh,
Departed,they have,
with sorrows unsaid,
and song wordless..!!!

Nicely written commentary to the fall which is rapidly slipping into winter. A season soon departed.

Your poem reminded me of a true story of the killing of a farmer's old boar hog during the depression.
The boar was always tied up by the ring in his nose and the kids would tease him.
When the government ordered killing of 20% of all the livestock to raise prices for the farmers this farmer decided to kill the old boar hog.
That pig didn't die when he was shot. He pulled up the post by his nose and ran away, probably to die in the hills for the buzzards.
The fellow telling the story said that hog could have pulled the stake and charged after any of his teasors any time he was angry enough.

You leaves went through some mounful agony in their departure, I imagane that poor hog did as well.
