Moon – Leaf

              

A late fall leaf hung on the near tree,

A “finger-nail” moon [1] hung in the sky.

They caught peripheral vision,

This early morn, as I walked by.

2

One is a charming, distant white “globe,”

One close remnant of season past.

One has circled o’er earth long years

One’s existence we know cannot last,

3

One gives light to a darkened ole world,

One gave shade in its own (past) “hay day.”

One will flutter some day to earth,

One we all hope stays far, far away.

4

One has a rough man in a moon face,

However it’s basically all round.

One has rugged pointy edges,

Tenaciously the leaf “hangs around.”

5

Distant giant traveling the high sky,

Local leaf silhouetted down here,

Were made by our Heavenly Father

In His powerful, yet tender care.

Moon – Leaf

A late-fall leaf hung on the near tree;

A “finger-nail” moon hung in the sky.

They caught peripheral vision

This early morn, as I walked by.

 

One is a charming, distant white globe;

One close remnant of season past.

One has circled earth for long years;

One’s existence we know cannot last.

 

One gives light to a darkened ole world;

One gave shade in its own (past) “hay day.”

One will flutter some day to earth;

One, we all hope, stays far, far away.

 

One has a rough man in a moon face,

However, it’s basically all round.

One has rugged pointy edges,

Tenaciously the leaf “hangs around.”

 

Distant giant traveling the high sky,

Local leaf silhouetted down here,

Were made by our Heavenly Father

In His powerful, yet tender care.

A late fall leaf hung on the tree,

Finger-nail moon hung in the sky.

They caught peripheral vision,

This early morn, as I walked by.

 

One a charming, distant white globe,

One close remnant of season past.

One has circled earth for long years

One’s existence cannot long last,

 

One gives light to a darkened world,

One gave shade in its own “hay day.”

One will flutter some day to earth,

One we all hope stays far away.

 

One has a rough man in moon face,

But it is basically all round.

One has rugged pointy edges,

Tenaciously it “hangs around.”

 

Distant giant traveling the sky,

Local leaf silhouetted there,

Were both made by our Dear Father

In powerful yet tender care.
