The poetry metaphorically talks about women’s helplessness and man’s might. Women often give in, unable to stand men’s power like the leaf did to that of the wind.
Try she did
The pretty green leaf
Check it out!
To hang on
But he was too strong
The robust wind
He bent upon her with all his might
And pulled her off
She shook… quivered… trembled
Begging him to let her stay
With her beloved
The old ragged branch.
But his need was greater
He shook with delight
As he took her
On a ride
Of reckless desire
As she quietly succumbed
To his need and quagmire.
An idle tear left her eye
To touch a patch of soil
The ground was broken, bruised and dry.
The leaf heard something
Hoarse and wry
“Why do you weep, O pretty leaf?”
“You are but still green
See what he has done to the whole of me!”
