This leaf fell
Ten thousand years ago
 
And I was not here
To see it fall
 
I have been here
All yearlong
 
I watched bare branches
Hinting of red buds
 
I watched the leaves pop
Exploring fully in time
 
Sun, late frost, rain, high winds,
Lack of rain, more wind, early frost
 
This leaf showed firm and
Toiled day after day till now
 
I hope I am here
To see her fall
 
Just as I hope
Someone will see me fall
