Balding Trees

The Last Leaf
The Last Leaf by Gladys Folkers

 

Balding Trees

The leaves all grow each spring
And the leaves all fall each autumn,
But some leaves firmly cling
While the rest – the ground has caught ’em.
I think the final leaves outstanding
Wait till last, to clinch a nice soft landing.
