Tree Tale



How deep are my roots

how far down do I go

I only feel them not see

from the surface below

And the creatures that live

above, in my leaves

Why do they stay there

building futures on me

I stand tall and strong

and blow in the breeze

I stay put for years

not come and go as I please

In winters I stand bare

barren and dark

In summer I flourish

like all trees in the park

Children they climb me

and swing from up high

The old sit in my shade

watch the days going by

What’s my meaning to you

do I connect to your soul

Do my species protect you

Keep your world whole
