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.
