Two Lonely Souls

A Poem By Libby // 11/17/2019

The forlorn child looks up with a smile
Each time the maple leaves sway with the breeze,
Dancing like maidens of scarlet and gold
For the girl at the window who watches the trees,
Seeking escape from a sorrowful world.
Watching the brilliant frocks each leaf wears
Tremble with laughter in the rustling wind,
The sad little girl has forgotten her cares.

The maple boughs wave gaily to her,
Greeting in style the lonely little girl.
Noting how weary she looks, the leaves
Skip blithely about and merrily twirl,
Attempting to please their audience of one,
The only creature that still comes to see
The forgotten tree. Together they make
Two lonely souls in glad company.


Oh Libby, I love this so

Oh Libby, I love this so much!!! First of all your description is amazing! I especially loved that you said the leaves were "Dancing like maidens of scarlet and gold". Secondly, you personified the leaves/tree very well! It really did feel like a person to person interaction, and I loved it! But thirdly, this poem just reminded me of the unique peace that God's beautiful creation brings us. It really is a gift of love to us.

In short, as always, well done Libby! <3 I would say this is one my favorites of yours. :)

C.H. Spurgeon - "God’s mercy is so great that you may sooner drain the sea of its water, or deprive the sun of its light, or make space too narrow, than diminish the great mercy of God. "


Okay, your imagery? On point. Your personification? Perfection. Timing? Best.
I just love everything about it and its perfect sensation of Autumn! I could hear it, see it, smell it, feel it, taste it... amazing!
