A fallen Leaf

Days gone now when you were damsel’s crown,

As if tempting them to shed their veil.
Desperate and dejected you are on the ground,
With any passer-by trampling you in pieces.
‘What has knocked you down on the ground?’I asked
“When your intimates delude you,you have to fall,”it replied
