The Girl and the Tree

The Girl and the Tree

I’m a tree, lonely but strong
My only friends are the cows and the wheat
Sometimes I wish I was a human being that walks on two legs,
There is a river nearby,
I really want to come to feel the cool water streaming down on my roots,
Squirrels come to me and make me their home to keep their food safe for the winter!
I grow strong and tall through the night.
A little girl comes to write books and climbs my branches
She gives me water and seeds
Sometimes I think of what to do with them,
I accidently drop them and my water on the ground
A sprout comes up!
A few years later I have a family
The little girl comes back
She’s not so little any more,
I tried to say thank you, I couldn’t…
Still, I am thankful for my new family
