Have you ever wondered how a leaf does know


Have you ever wondered how a leaf does know
When to burst the bud and begin life and grow

It grows and nourishes the trunk and roots below
It holds on tight though the wind and rain bestow

It grows with such vigor and large becomes
To shade the ground from harsh summer suns

Then as the days begin to shorten and cool
It changes color and withers without a drool

When the time is right only it knows just when
Releases its grasp and softly falls to earth again

To protect the grass and roots from winters snow
Have you ever wondered how a leaf does know
