"Be good to people. And don't forget that you are people, too"
- Colin Wright

Just a leaf in the wind;

With billions of others grown

 that float just like it.

 I follow.

The breeze swerves it between the winding trees.

In a dance I pace behind.

Leaf wait for me!

A game I want to play,

A race that should never be won,

Something light and immortal.

The breeze stays still.

I mourn when the leaf falls.

The author's comments:

This peice was written while I was listening to, Symphony No.3 in C Minor, Op.78, R.176 "Organ Symphony": la.Adagio-Allegro moderato. Origionally composed by Camille Saint-Saëns. I find that this poem has a lot of different themes behind it. I hope you enjoy it!
