Falling leaves 4

And then the clouds came
they sent down the rain
and the red-gold leaf and
each leaf friend
grew so wet and soft
that they could bend
and they did blend
until one could not tell
where one did end
and the other begin.
The snow came then
and covered all of them
and one against the other
under the snow cover
the red-gold leaf became one
with each leaf friend
and in the dark
the red-gold leaf pressed
ever closer to the earth
until one could not tell
where leaf did end and earth
