The Beauty in a Leaf
A falling leaf does not spoil the scene,
nor tarnish the earth upon which it falls.
Whether feeding the roots which gave it life
or pressed within the pages of a book,
carried within it is the heart of the tree, and its beauty.
The prompt from Lillian for Quadrille Monday at dVerse is to use the word “spoil” in a quadrille, a 44-word poem of no set meter or rhyme.
