The leaves fell the same time as I,
Fell in love with them and all that
surrounded them as they marked
the onset of a colorless winter.
I sat there and marveled and dream't
of the day when I could enjoy
all of this bold beauty with one
who could also understand what
I felt when I saw this wonder.
I wanted someone who could see
the lush and refreshing waterfalls
and feel a calming peace.
What I saw was magnificent.
What I felt was sheer refreshment.
Refreshment of my wild spirit.
I wanted to dive in the pool
of cool autumn water ad run
along with the stream and follow
the flow until the end of time.
That was the beauty of the falls.
