To Fallen Leaves


Awaken and see
You're finally free,
So don't sit on the ground -
You can fly around,
Catch the breeze,
And do what you please.
You can ride a car
And go quite far
Or sit on a train,
See California to Maine.
Better still, hide in a plane,
And fly to Barcelona, Spain,
Or find a cruise ship,
Sleek and hip,
Explore all oceans,
And pamper your emotions.
So will you please
Catch the breeze
And leave my lawn,
Preferably by dawn?
