Autumn Leaf

    Autumn Leaf

I shall be an autumn leaf
When summer days are done,
An orange, red, or yellow flame
Translucent in the Son.

I shall hold the warmth of days
When cool night settles in
Beneath the heaven’s sprinkled stars
Where endings shall begin.

I shall drift from where I clung
Upon the boughs of earth,
And leave behind my earthly sum
As I die for rebirth.

About the Poet
Husband, father, grandfather, and each title is my joy. As a youth, poetry was a means to express the inexpressable. I was attracted to (and still am) the beauty and brevity of verse. All flows out from God, and like a proper prayer, can flow back.
