off the leash

The Weathercats snapped them, but could not catch them…

obedient in green
a summer long,
by autumn
tanked up
on colours,
the leaves are
off the leash,
tippey-toed
on asphalt,
running giddy
in sun,
crumpling
the wind to
standstill

The music is from the second of the ‘Drei Stücklein’ (Three Small Pieces) from the album of piano pieces ‘Bunte Blätter’ {Colored Leaves} by Robert Schumann.
