One Red Leaf

red leaf
A tree, down the block stands bare
but for one red leaf, all alone
on the end of a branch.

Wind whips the branches as the
tree holds on desperately,
not wanting to let it go.

As the wind finally pulls the leaf
free, the tree sighs with sadness
as the leaf shrieks, “Free! Free at last!”
