Copper Leaf

The song of copper leaves

Dreams such as these

Bronzed by hope

Yellowed by light

 

The song of copper leaves

Falls into the eaves

A century passes by

A thousand years float by

 

The song of copper leaves

Is heard in the trees

As the wind plays through the branches

And the copper leaf dances

 

It sings about its happiness

It sings about its mourning

It dances out its sadness

It gestures for you to follow

 

Up and down

Spiralling

Ducking

Flying

Leaping

Across the sky and closing on the land

 

Follow the leaf as it dances, dances

Follow the leaf as it sings in you

The leaf is your coppery dream

The leaf is the dream that lights your way
