"Falling"


Autumn's breeze is falling--
falling all around,
Fragile leaves are crumbling
as they tumble to the ground.
Autumn's all around us
in golden-auburn hues--
Telling of our Savior,
His wondrous gospel news.
Broken ...  not forsaken,
We can hear the North Wind call,
"Come all ye children of the Lord
in Christ be Love enthralled--
Come all ye children of the Lord,
come gather one and all."
Like seedlings 'round the old oak,
Like fields bowed down with wheat,
Like angels come to gather
about His mercy seat,
Autumn's breeze is falling--
falling all around,
Fragile leaves are crumbling
as they tumble to the ground.

Bob:  This is a wonderful, uplifting poem. I like the comparison between falling leaves and people!

Trillium,

So glad that you captured the correlation between the two.  Thanks as always for your kind comment.
Noah,

So glad to see that you're moderating this forum.  You have some beautiful insight here about "the tree of life" and "the breeze of love."  Thanks my friend and God bless you.
