Nearly 40 years after first seeing this poem, I still feel the unity of
loneliness and oneliness when I watch a leaf fall. The simple textual and
visual beauty never ceases to touch me with great emotional power.

(To: Morgan from US.) Anyone can write a sentence sweetie. I'm not going to
say it's some great poem or that he is a great poet, but don't waste your
time trying to bash other people; because all you're doing is mking
yourself look like an idiot. Poetry is meant to be different. Not some
formulated sentence that everyone understands.

oneliness is split off of loneliness, and further split it's
one—one leaf falling. Get it?

I believe that the poem is suposed to say a leaf falls in loneliness
because its by its self and alone instead of clumped together on top of the

the words a leaf falls is inside the word loneliness if you straiten it

l(a leaf falls)oneliness
