Fallen Leaves (October 18)


"I Was The Greenest Leaf Of Spring"

Ah! as the heart grows older
It will come to such sights colder
By and by, nor spare a sigh
Though worlds of wanwood leafmeal lie

I was assigned to write a term paper on Hopkins when I was in high school, and "Spring and Fall" has stuck with me ever since.
