One Autumn Day,
A cold front spray,
Freezing the tree,
The leaves fell to me,
One by one they were gone,
Untill only one leaf to be done,
And when the last leaf fell
The secret was revealed.

Make your own lines, and color outside of them.

I thought it was beutifull. Oscar worthy (if the Oscars were for poems) Keep writing like that and you'll be more famous than Shakespreare! :)

Beautifully laid out and great finish!

Short and sweet and has a good meaning to it. The reader would like to know what the secret is though :)
