ONCE AGAIN THE LEAVES ARE FALLING

By Jacob O. Meyer – 11/5/1998

Many autumns in my lifetime,
I have watched the seasons
change,
We saw times for tilling and
Planting,
Harvests pass, the seasons ended.

Sitting in a park so pleasant,
After frost has touched the trees,
Leaves are falling gently
Fluttering earthward,
Brightly colored with heaven’s
Brush and paints.

A soft breeze stirs, suddenly the
leaves release their grip,
From the branch they lightly fall
Away,
Softly carpeting the lawn,
Creating colorful autumn patterns
On the ground.

Leaves are falling, O how
Quickly life has ended for them
All,
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
Verdant time!
All too soon life’s end
Approaches, winter comes, we
Drift away,
Too soon forgotten in our fate.
