When it snows and my limbs begin to bend
under the weight, I relax
letting loose all worries and cares
When the North wind blows
I just curl in my roots
like toes in new Christmas shoes
But my buds will soon be showing themselves
and I prepare the greetings
The leaves inside can dream tall tales
The skies arrange the meetings
Critters and birds are familiar to me
I play with them all, at times
I think, I hear, I feel, I see
a spring in my step
a rhythm with rhymes
Lighten up and quench my thirst
A newborn joy says, “You’re the first!”
Bless this tree, O’ Love Divine
Smile on me, my sweet sunshine!
