The Last Leaf

When I saw this tree with that single leaf (dried) in it, the only thing that came to my mind was ‘The Last Leaf‘. I know that story from the Hindi Adaptation of it into a very beautiful film called Lootera.

 

“….

And if I should live to be
The last leaf upon the tree
In the spring,
Let them smile, as I do now,
At the old forsaken bough
Where I cling.” 
― Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.
