A lonely leaf has forgotten it has company,

Forgotten the leaves in the same branch,

Forgotten the branch, the branches, the trunk, the tree, the root–

More than anything else, it has forgotten it is the sap, the Earth, the sky,  the All-in-All;

 

The gardener comes with water to remind it

And the leaf is very cheery: Now it is Leaf and All, Leaf and All!
