Good bye leaves.
See ya in the spring.

THE RED LEAF’S SOLILOQUY
Why am I here (said the red leaf)
Among all these leaves of dull brown?
Surely I’m much more resplendent—
Perhaps even fit for a crown.
So much more have I to offer
Than leaves that are yellow or green;
To think that no would notice—
Unthinkable! Oh, how obscene!
My veins are flowing with scarlet,
With royal vermilion and red,
While all those leaves that are common
Move sludge through their dull veins instead.
Choose me above all the others
My glory will last, never fade;
I am the leaf of your longings,
Most exquisite leaf ever made.
