Thank You!

Thank you!

I paused while I raked the leaves

Many give thanks for the fruits

And even flowers


I paused to give thanks for the leaves

Who constantly breathed air

And received the sun and rain

Who endured all the storms and droughts

Now fallen and stamped on

Raked and gathered to be burnt


I remember all those leaves

Fallen ones

Nameless and many

My fathers and mothers

Brothers and sisters

Thank you!

Thank you!
