A yellow leaf
from the summer sky -
before the storm.
I wrote my poem in 1974.
In a comic strip in today's (October 8, 2010) TULSA WORLD, "Red & Rover" are sitting under a tree watching a leaf fall. Red says, "Look, an advance scout." Rover muses, "Advance scout??" Hidden beneath a pile of leaves, Red says, "Yep."
I clicked the photo in October 1996 in Humbird, Wisconsin.
