Can You Hear Leaves Falling?

I took a walk at a nearby park and I noticed a sound I couldn’t identify until I stood still, watched and listened, and then I knew it was the very soft sound of leaves falling and drifting to the ground on the very lightest of breezes.

Can you hear leaves falling

As they drift

Carried by the autumn breeze?

Leaves are swirling

Dancing all around

And I just take it in,

The beautiful music of leaves gently falling to the ground.
