The Magnolia Tree
It’s shedding leaves as autumn starts,
Letting go of the old to rest awhile.
The leaves are scattered by the wind,
They fall in my garden and drift on the breeze.
Leaves falling, tree naked and bare, standing tall and proud
Life goes on, forever changing and renewing,
Look at the trees and how easily they let go
Preparing for the new life to come in spring
What can we learn from the falling leaves?
Can we start again, let go of the old and rejoice in renewal?
Always the hope of renewal,
That things will get better.
Letting go of what no longer serves you,
Look forward to spring and new life.
