A lonely leaf lies on the ground

From sky fallen, now to earth bound,

Caught in the wind it flew away

Moving on towards a new day.


I cannot say why this plain sight

Captured my eye with such delight,

And be one traveler, long I stood

Helpless to look away for good.


In the middle of the footpath,

So far away from human wrath,

A single leaf lay on the ground.


I know not what to it I found

But was my soul by this sight called

And so my heart forthwith enthralled.
