The Last Leaf Fell......


I think today the last leaf fell
No grand hurray, no sad farewell
No distant tolling of a bell
I think today the last leaf fell

Has autumn shed her final tear?
The rustling bed of memories dear
Ah, so it goes, another year
Has autumn shed her final tear?

I think today a teardrop fell
But who it is, no one can tell
Sorrow is a silent well
I think today a teardrop fell

Winter, spring, summer and fall
Splash their colors on us all
Painting memories on our wall
Winter, spring, summer and fall

I think today the last leaf fell
Where it landed, none can tell
Nature’s tears, a soundless knell
I think today the last leaf fell
