In Response to~Gooseberry Poetry Picnic~Week~15~ Winter Sadness


Sadness and sorrow 
fill my heart
When I see the leaves
 silently leave the tree
Without a cry without a sound
One by one 
they come to the ground
Rolling over and over 
they go round and round
The cruel wind has no mercy
Standing quiet and motionless
 the tree is  totally helpless
But bravely the loss it will bear
Without a sigh without a tear'
When Time comes in 
Winter Sadness melts away
Spring sunshine tenderly,
 will  awaken
 sorrowful sleeping Mother Earth!
Hark !
Do I hear the bluebirds  sing?
