Death of a Maple Leaf

Here lies a leaf, dead of natural causes
and through no fault of its own.

It is survived
by its brothers and sisters, the maple leaves
and the old maple tree
from whence it fell.

The funeral service
is to be held tomorrow
wherein the deceased
shall be trod underfoot by a passing stranger
into the mud
beneath its brothers and its sisters
who will soon be joining it.
