Autumns Leftovers

July 29, 2008
By Meaghan Crandell, Brookfield, MO

Little leaf
on the ground
how have you managed
to stay so sweet?
all of the others have gone
-blown away-
How did you ever manage to stay?
so beautiful, untouched
the elements were not aroused
They left you all alone
oh how I wish-
I wish I were you
sacred, invincible
for now, i guess
ill have to make due
my little leaf...
if only you knew
