Ill Girl: Poetry

Male Examples

  • The "last leaf" cliche dates back at least to the first decade of the 19th century, when Charles Hubert Millevoye wrote his highly popular poem "La chute des feuilles" ("The Falling of the Leaves"), in which a sick young man wanders mournfully in the woods musing on his upcoming death. "La dernière feuille qui tombe/A signalé son dernier jour" ("The last leaf to fall/Signaled his last day").
