a cold chill passes through the leaves at night

the leaves tremble and start to shake

they try to hold on, but can’t

stronger, the wind now comes

the first start to fly

through the night sky

the rest join

the flight

This poem starts with 9 syllables and then goes to 8 in the next line and so on. Its not as easy as it would seem. Enjoy!
