The leaves will dry up and grow old
The child will grow blood

The aging of the leaves represents the worry women have about growing old, but they are beautiful and they remain beautiful as they change.

Blood is also thought of as negative, but it is within us all- man, too. We have it to remind us of children every month. The hope in the future, despite change, children are precious jewels.
