A Leaf

A Leaf

If I were a leaf
(but I wouldn't be)
I'd have to be tied
to a tree, tree, tree.
I couldn't walk off
(or skip or run)
and my nose would get burned
by the sun, sun, sun.
In summer I'd roast,
(in winter I'd freeze)
and all through October
I'd sneeze, sneeze, sneeze.

~ Aileen Fisher

Achoo! :)

I love the playfulness of this poem, the fun rhymes and Fisher's imagination. I don't think I would like to be a leaf. Would you?
