Leaving Home

by Jim Rapp


The Leaves are falling,
tint-edged by Frost and Sun;
Mother Earth is calling
so their journey has begun.

The Air, too still today to tug them
from the Skeletons they leave,
calls on Gravity to pry away their stems
and guide them downward into growing sheaves

where they will lie in wait for Wind
to come and carry them away;
to blend them, where he sends,
with leaves that fell another place.
