Poem: “The Day Before They Fall”


The Day Before They Fall

It is enough to follow
The autumn of the trees
To know the heart is shallow
And heaven will not please

Although a time of ruin
Might seem to be a curse,
The happiness of heaven
Would cause the heart to burst

Enough to see in glory
The deepest gold of all,
The leaves of hickory
The day before they fall
