Fallen leaves of autumnal skies,
tomorrow is yesterday,
blink of an eye,

The changing seasons transcend today,
spring becomes fall,
summer far away,

And what of the leaf that lies on the ground?
the greenness of summer,
turns autumn-brown,

What of our lives moted with age?
time races on at the turn of a page,

What will become of our history?
flotsam and jetsam in time's endless sea,

Our we making mistakes?
we will never know,
we put our feet forward,
leaves crunching below.
