ONCE AGAIN THE LEAVES ARE FALLING
By Jacob O. Meyer – 11/5/1998
Many autumns in my lifetime,
I have watched the seasons
We saw times for tilling and
Harvests pass, the seasons ended.
Sitting in a park so pleasant,
After frost has touched the trees,
Leaves are falling gently
Brightly colored with heaven’s
Brush and paints.
A soft breeze stirs, suddenly the
leaves release their grip,
From the branch they lightly fall
Softly carpeting the lawn,
Creating colorful autumn patterns
On the ground.
Leaves are falling, O how
Quickly life has ended for them
Only there for one brief season,
Now the soft breeze stirs,
And softly earthward they fall.
Life is so much like the foliage,
Thoughtlessly we neglect the
All too soon life’s end
Approaches, winter comes, we
Too soon forgotten in our fate.
