"The leaf"

A single leaf upon the water flowing down the stream
Ripples in the water push the leaf along a scheme
A stick may drag, a rock may swirl, the leaf's path undefined
But, still the leaf goes on its way accepting course assigned
To tumble down the falls of chance to rumble in the tide
The swirling, frothing, mists enshroud, a moment to abide
But, out it goes, still moving on, relentless is the ride
Upon the times that fortune grants, with grace the tree supplied
