That winter was unusually cold, causing the young painter Johnsy to have a “killer” disease – pneumonia. Johnsy was bored, surrendered. She counted every single ivy leaf outside the window that fell every night and thought that when the last leaf had fallen, it was time for her last breath.
But miraculously, after many nights of wind, the ivy still has a leaf “green to the stem”. That hardy heart became a source of encouragement for Johnsy, prompting her to return to life.
How can a small leaf resist terrible winds? The last leaf of the writer O’Henri will give you the answer.
