The Last Hurrah

Did God paint the leaves

He must have done

Did he bore of their eternal green

Look, he even dulled the sky blank grey

So the sum of all leaves

Would have its day

Their yellow, pink, and orange day

I wonder if he ever considered another

Blue or purple maybe

But these are good enough

More than that even

One last hurrah

Before the trees go bare

And we wait it out
