Like Leaf


Begga

I am like that leaf, look

on the bare branch, to which wonder

still attaches.

Ignore me then. don’t be saddened

by my great age that fills you with anxiety,

and lingers here in childish outbursts.

Wish me farewell, though there’s no need to say it.

dying is nothing; it’s losing you is hard.

-Umberto Saba-
