I was sitting on a bus full of loud teenagers on my way to school. The rain was pouring down and all I could hear was complaints from my fellow bus travellers about how their hair would be ruined or their clothes would become wet by the rain. This is where the inspiration for this poem arose.
This is a year 11 literature assignment written back in 2008. Our teacher sent us out into the yard on a gorgeous autumn day and asked us to pick a leaf out that we liked. When we came in we were told to write a poem about it. This was my result.
