The Circle of Life Carries On by Louise Gallagher “Help me! I’m falling,” called the leaf to the limb. The limb whispered back, “You must let go and let Mother Nature catch you.” “But it will be the end of me,” cried the leaf. “Hang on or let go, your life will end,” said the limb. “It is nature’s way..” Frightened, the leaf clung tighter to the limb as the autumn winds blew fierce. The limb shook, the leaf fell and nature had its way. Winter came followed by spring bursting with leaves unfolding. The circle of life carries on, unending.
