The Fall of Colours


By Kumar Punithavel


It is that time of the year

Full of colours far and near

Leaves flutter a while and tumble down

Laying a colourful carpet of leaves on the ground.

They lie on the ground to rest

Forth coming snow will cover it white and rest

Leaves that fluttered in the sky

Rests on the ground unable to fly.

The tree will be barren and bare

Cold winter blowing in the air

Very soon the trees will sprout again

With new green leaves it regain.

Likewise, the world will be normal

Life again restored to be formal

Virus gone and families together

Children flutter playing together
