Why the Leaves Fall
From Legends of the Mighty
Many moons ago when the world was
still very young, the plant and animal life was enjoying the
beautiful summer weather. But as the days went by, autumn set
in, and the weather became colder with each passing day.
The grass and flower folk were in
a sad condition, for they had no protection from the sharp cold.
Just when it seemed that there was no hope for living, He who
looks after the things of His creation came to their aid. He
said that the leaves of the trees should fall to the ground,
spreading a soft, warm blanket over the tender roots of the
grass and flowers. To repay the trees for their loss of leaves,
He allowed them one last array of beauty.
That is why, each year, during Indian
summer the trees take on their pretty farewell colors of red,
gold, and brown. After this final display they turn to their
appointed task--covering the earth with a thick rug of warmth
against the chill of winter.
