Why Do the Leaves Linger On?

Why do the leaves linger on,
Braving the wind — winter’s song?

Tenacious, they cling to the branch,
Desperate that age will not advance.

The rest, long since fallen to their grave,
While these remain, dogged and brave.

But the cloak of night draws ’round,
And the leaves shiver at every sound.

So why do the leaves linger on,
Braving the wind — winter’s song?

Hope — hope to see another spring dawn,
Hope to gaze upon a new-born fawn.

All Poetry – Henry Barnard
