The life of leaves

The leaves on the trees they are budding
The leaves on the trees they are green
The leaves on the trees are the loveliest
That I have ever seen

The leaves on the trees they are full grown
The leaves on the trees they are strong
The leaves on the trees they are bursting forth
In silent summer song

Now the leaves on the trees they are dying
The leaves on the trees they are brown
The leaves on the trees they are letting go
And drifting to the ground

The leaves from the trees they are crumbling
The leaves from the trees disappear
But the life of the leaves of yesterday
Will rise again next year
