12 (who?)
Save one last dance upon thy breeze,
For I, a leaf, doth fall for you.
O whipping wind! with gentle ease,
Twirl me softly, spin me true.

Glow strong! Glow bright, O setting sun!
Your dying rays a shadow cast
And I, a broken, little leaf,
Shall chill and fade to ground at last.

Sky so dark and night so fine,
The frost hath settled in my soul.
I'll keep this secret forever mine,
The last warm day I briefly stole.
I'm in an Autumn mood. Wanted to write a little poem. Can't wait for Fall~.

This poem was featured in our weekly feature, after it was suggested by ~crystelclear1104.

P2TM is designed to encourage more people to read and write poetry, including song lyrics, through a weekly feature: one main poem, with information about the poem and the poet, and links to two further poems. All these poems are suggested to me by deviants.
