Missouri Opus

A thousand leaves give their last all-
Their lives spent together
they reach a pinnacle in their journey.
They take to the air
to imitate birds of spring-
their colors singing out;
they land and cover the ground
that nourished their entire lives.
This final opus their one chance
to shine in all God's glory
before put to rest
buried under a white blanket that
will inter them to the ground
from which they came.
