There are two books



This looks like the likely culprit to me though

Like A Leaf on the Wind

I would give the world today
If I could hear that song of hers again".

So laments an Irish lullaby of a life passed
Like a leaf on the wind.
Innocently it yields to the winds call.
The leaf and wind, then, soar together as one,
With no thought, as the journey is begun,
That when it lands the journey is done.

Falling through time in an aerial ballet,
Suspended, though it seems, in eternity;
With the grace of a ballerina, elusive as a butterfly,
It dips and pirouettes on its downward journey;
Concealing, by the beauty of its dance, the reality
Of its relentless descent into obscurity.
Sadly, then, each success or failure is not savored,
Each smile and touch not a treasure to make the heart sigh.
Now, the leaf, wafting ever downward, nears the ground
Haunted by the words of that Irish lullaby.

The Part-Time Postmodernist
