Never Soar

One unfastened tawny leaf wafted on wings of wind in the cordovan autumn sunrise on its last starchy night to grip a bough the lamina sailed free from the fragile fortress of a cottonwood tree Siezed a breeze with abandon floated atop the valley, struggled to stay aloft, above The river's raging waves that forever chop a path in granite and clay Dived, dipped, on nostrils of air swinging, swirling, here and there, hither and yon In coda scrolls leeward flits and flutters to a chestnut carpted meadow, sated Ordinary leaves fall from trees at harvest time when the moon lies on it's back and Collect fairy dust, but never soar
