Draping in the wind
She stood there draping in the wind,
The other stared and laughed,
They didn’t care, They were popular, Full of leaves,
Unlike she herself, Bear no leaves,
They always fall off in the winter,
How come the others didn’t have the same problem, she thought,
Suddenly she fell over, The others were stunned,
They didn’t know what was happening, however the girl did,
No more humiliation she thought as she closed her eyes and fell into an everlasting sleep.

You are an amazing poet

You're really talented! The way you describe everything is beautiful. Please write more poems!
Nikki Encina on 10 June, 2016You are an amazing poet, Kate! I love that you use nature around us to be seemingly normal people. I do think it might be slightly saddening, the way the tree just suddenly fell. Did it die, for the poem said 'and fell into an everlasting sleep'. Best and warmest wishes, Nikki Encina
Sadhbh on 21 March, 2016wow! I really like the way you talk about the tree (it's a tree, right?) as if it were a girl! keep writing! xx
