Herbstwind

(Ein Gedicht von Dieter Kermas)
.

Der Herbstwind fegt die Bäume leer,
treibt Blätterscharen vor sich her.
Nur ein Blatt hält sich fest am Ast
und denkt: Wozu nur diese Hast?
Dort unten liegen nun seit gestern,
all meine Brüder und die Schwestern.
Versiegt ist nun der Lebenssaft,
zu Ende unsre Lebenskraft.
Wie herrlich war die Sommerzeit.
Jetzt ruft der Herbst: „ Es ist soweit!“
So dacht das Blatt, dann fiel es ab
ins nasse, kühle Kompostgrab.
