Nalini D’Souza, 10th

Nalini D’Souza is a sophomore and has a passion for writing poetry. This is a poem she wrote about autumn.




The painted leaves of trees

Stolen gently by the breeze

Floating soundlessly

In a churning sea

As the cycle begins again


Weeping upon the Earth

Reds, and browns, and golds

Until the gnarled splinters

Of branches withered

Howl their songs of old


Trampled into the soil

Aroma of fresh, cold rain

The crunching ground

Melts into brown

Until no life remains


But this icy world

Is not what it seems

For the seeds of the past

Are nourished from ash

And the dead will rise again
