Love is like a golden brown leaf
falling to the ground.
Falling, twirling, drifting,
toward that spot on the Earth.
Clinging on to the bare branches for
It has lost its lovely green colour.
It has lost its beautiful glow.
Crunch, crunch, crunch
is the sound of thick,
Winter boots treading peacefully
It is now but shreds,
waiting for Spring to come,
alas, so it may be pure once more.
