Cascade Poem

Somewhere out there in the blosisphere I read about cascade poems. I don't remember where or any other specifics, but the form is that each line of the first stanze is used as the final line in each of the following stanzas. So, the form would be
A
B
C

a
b
A

c
d
B

e
f
C

So, here is my rough draft of that form...a bit more difficult than I thought it would be. I'll try to do some editing after sleeping on it for a night or two.

Cascade Poem

While walking along the path today,
And watching the dancing leaves,
I somehow lost my way

I watched the dappled sunshine fall
In abstract patterns at my feet
While walking along the path today

Beneath my feet the path diverged;
I paused, feeling the wind on my face
And watching the dancing leaves

With the day coming to a close
And purple shadows growing long,
I somehow lost my way
