Poetry: When Beauty Falls by Stephanie Ayers
We are still celebrating World Poetry Month here on Our Write Side. Today’s poetry is a rhyme from our CEO, Stephanie Ayers, titled When Beauty Falls. Enjoy.
When Beauty Falls
He stands there, stoic and bold.
Naked, he shivers in the cold.
Slowly he buds, dressed in greens.
In his beauty now he preens.
The wind with her whispers that flow right through
Entrance him with the kiss of a lover true.
All summer long with the sun he plays
Shaking his leaves, catching her rays.
Before too long, the wind finds out
And whips his cheating heart about.
One by one, his leaves they fall
In a burst of flaming color, his vintage call.
They fall to earth like puzzle pieces
His love, his life, his beauty ceases.
