The Resurrection of Leafe
Poetry By Gerard Haughey

Dead, she fell
Still, on the cold ground, she were
I sat on a school bench just a few feet from her

So sad- to see
Her lifeless shell before me

Such a wind was born, just then
Picking her up- She danced kindly around my doubts
Gentle steps toward a metaphor, forever more

In the windy cross-section,
She drew flight
A resurrection of leaf

She flew away
The little leaf,
Toward the white light
Of the blue sky
