Leaves Frances McCrory Meservy @ 2003 Published in Immortal Verses Series released Winter of 2006

Leaves are like people they say;

With each wind they sway.

They fall from their birth tree

Like children leaving home to be free.


Slow and easy with the rake

Or they'll fly away in the wake.

Easy does it with the children's trust

Patience wins, it's a must.


Gather them close to your heart

So you won't rend things apart.

Gently encourage and persuade

To join God's army, His crusade.
