4 November – Stowaway II

See how far
you get by car,
little leaf hitchhiker.
Cling to windscreen,
ride the machine,
watch out for the wiper…
Up the A roads,
through new postcodes:
make the motorway!
Hold on tight,
win wind’s fight,
keep on being brave.
Don’t unravel,
then you’ll travel
further than you dream.
Stay this bold,
go for gold,
join the Olympic-leaf team.
Keep going forth,
conquer the north,
perhaps you’ll reach the border.
If you do,
congrats to you,
a ceilidh is in order!
