That’s just the way it is

by Christa Layr

A leaf in autumn tumbles down
when all the green has left.
What stayed was yellow, red or brown,
of chlorophyll bereft.

After a heyday comes repose
as after hill the vale.
And any hard way that you chose
can make you fall or fail.

Life always has its ups and downs
which make you learn and grow.
Nature just wears its different gowns,
each perfect for the show.
