Said a Blade of Grass

Said a blade of grass to an autumn leaf, "You make such a noise
falling! You scatter all my winter dreams."

Said the leaf indignant, "Low-born and low-dwelling! Songless,
peevish thing! You live not in the upper air and you cannot tell
the sound of singing."

Then the autumn leaf lay down upon the earth and slept. And when
spring came she waked again and she was a blade of grass.

And when it was autumn and her winter sleep was upon her, and
above her through all the air the leaves were falling, she muttered
to herself, "O these autumn leaves! They make such noise! They
scatter all my winter dreams."

(By Khalil Gibran)

  1. In the background there are autumn leaves (you can even see one of them in the drop!) from which this colors come. Thank you for your lovely words, I am glad about them! +Marie-Hélène Raletz 

  2. Ja, und man selber kniet auch voller Spannung davor und hofft, dass grad kein Lüftlein weht, und der Tropfen nicht weg kullert. Schön, wenn dann so ein Feedback kommt! herzlichen Dank +Bernhard Schmid 

  3. You know when that is all you can say. Good thing I could type and not just sit here with my mouth open
