An Ode To Falling Leaves: For Catherine


for catherine

tripping on the leaves...

oh! oh! the colors...


blowing in the wind...

the whirlwind!

everything is just blowing in the wind...

I am the wind...

you are the leaf...

with trails of leaves

chasing you...

encircling you...


in the whirlwind. - Terry Nelson

  1. You should be the national poet. This was moving.

    I think I will put it to music...

  5. My Darling Ter: Are you and David Haas now collaborating on liturgical music?!? I'll listen for this composition at Mass!

  6. Miss Cathy: David Haas is a "has been"...Mr. Terry is now the "poet laureate"...Haugen-Haas can now retire..and prepare for whatever awaits them in the afterlife (did I say thaaaat??!)

  8. Melody - you really think so? I was just being silly with the poem. I know nothing about poems. Larry does though - he was with "Up With People". ;)
