There were three little leaves that hung together
Until one day there was windy weather
They dropped to the ground one by one
Drifting down without a sound

Suddenly another gust came and blew
Picking up one and away it flew
Far over the land out of sight
Leaving the other two shivering in fright

Another big swirl picked another up and away
Leaving the third the only one to stay
Once in a while one or the other returned to see
The third little leaf but then again would leave

Finally the sad little leaf was left all alone
Laying there tucked tight to the ground
Until it decayed and to the roots returned
Nourishing the new leaves that appeared

Thank you Runningshavia. However, please read the rules of the poetry section regarding flooding and that poetry only is to be posted here. Everyone is welcome but it says to be polite and kind to others. Thank you.

To answer your question - by posting several of your own posts at a time - it pushes the other poets poems way down and discourages everyone from coming on.

A very good poem created by you.

So beautiful.
So sad.

I would love to think that some day those same leaves would reunite in one form or another ~ and that this would continue to happen for eternity.

Thank you Abby. I thought this poem might have sounded a little childish but then maybe we all have a little bit (some more then others like me) of child in them.
