The Leaf and the Nut

The Leaf and the Nut
By Brandon
Age 8

Once upon a time
there was a little leaf
who had a little friend, the nut.

The nut said,
"It's about time for
me to fall. Aren't you brown enough
to fall?

The leaf said,
"Bye-bye, I'm falling!"
The nut said,
"Hey, hey, not yet!
I meant tomorrow."

The leaf said,
"Dance around in the wind.
Maybe you can free your stubborn stem.
I'm going to go to decay.
You're going to grow into a tree.
If you land close enough to me
I will becomre frertilizer
for you!"
