Copper penny Golden coin Dangle from the branch. Metallic paper Holding fast Quick to find the ground. Sway as you will Leap when you can Searching for the earth. You all will fall When this is done And join the rotting soil. You come and go Without fail Such promise is repose. Shining, glittering, Shriveling Welcoming earth's rest. Trade me, Catch me, Watch me fall These coin leaves everywhere. They are for beauty Or raking work Or could they be much more? Sustenance, life Creation, They are everything you are. Copper penny Golden coin None enduring as you thought.
