Every Leaf

Sorbus_alnifolia_'Submollis'_JPG1La
Jean-Pol Grandmont/WC
Fall, leaves, fall; die, flowers, away;
Lengthen night and shorten day;
Every leaf speaks bliss to me
Fluttering from the autumn tree.
I shall smile when wreaths of snow
Blossom where the rose should grow;
I shall sing when night’s decay
Ushers in a drearier day.
Fall, leaves, fall– Emily Brontë
