Totally accepting

Winter blasted o’er the land
for one day, two at most,
and then it’s like the devil’s hands
brought the fire down.

One or two like you and me
thought to change the climes
but ordinary people
can’t change what has to be.

I disagree, oh, yes, I do
I’m more than I appear to be
but restricted so by body mass
I’m like a leaf at wind’s behest.

And how like leaves to be full green
vibrant, healthy, on the trees
until, until, that artful time
when off they go into the world.

They litter then the ground,
are pushed around and trodden on,
and just like me they come to be …
totally accepting!
