Leaves of Life and Love




When I read this I thanked GOD (and my parents !)  I was conceived at Christmas and delivered in September !  Who am I to argue with a horoscope !  However my TREE is the OLD WEEPING WILLOW - is she laughing at me ?



WEEPING WILLOW - BY STILL WATERS - AWESOME

EVERY YEAR I SHED MY LEAVES ...............................

Leaves of Childhood days
happy carefree days at play
Leaves of Boyhood days
first awareness of life and love
Leaves of University Days
studying - romancing - growing up
Leaves of Working days
learning to be an effective team player
Leaves of Partnership days
meeting - engagement - marriage
Leaves of Fatherhood days
too green for the responsibility
Leaves of Management days
development of interpersonal skills
Leaves of the Future days
mellowing and yellowing
Leaves of Finality days 
falling - lying - dying ! 

Those Autumn leaves go by my window
The red the brown the green the gold
Those Autumn leaves fall on the Lakeside
Remind me I am growing old !



DEDICATED TO ALL THOSE WHOSE LEAVES
SEEM TO BE FALLING TOO TOO QUICKLY !

I suppose a lot of couple choose to 'get pregnant' at the end/ beginning of a given year... I did too and have a wonderful September Son born on the 10th.<br />
<br />
and Ironically I have always associated him with the Weeping Willow tree as well. His name is even WILLiam. He cried a lot and I thought the tree association was quite fitting for the little bugger!! <br />
Beautiful words. Thanks for all you contribute to the site!<br />

Nice poems WS.<br />
It takes time for me to read all your poems

Poignant, and a reminder how fast the days of our lives pass. The weeping willow may be weeping, but how majestic.
