Tear in the Autumn Moon – A Sonnet


Keeper of trees, au pair of great forests
please tell me why you leave bare stark branches
cold and leafless until the spring arrives?
Where are the beautiful majestic leaves 
that always shade me from the harsh hot sun? 
I pray the Maples are well and still sweet.
I love the beauty of dancing Alders,
their yellow leaves shimmer in the breeze of 
a cool late summer’s day full of sunshine.
Each day snowflakes drift down, like leaves during 
autumn’s call we remember the beauty 
of green forests and wait for warmer days.
I’m left after winter, but on moon beams, 
a willow’s tear left to fade, fade away.
