leaf of hope

hope is a pale dry leaf
fallen off an autumn tree
tied to the heart with a thread
restless, tireless, and free

at the slightest hint it leaps
wakes up with a happy start
celebrating, dancing, rejoicing
in joys that do not last

time's gloomy winds
bring it back to earth
it still waits and holds out
shaken, but never shattered

lying soggy in the storm
staring longingly in the blue
that leaf of hope of mine
dies daily...and is born anew
