MY TREE IN THE WINTER ~ is stark and forlorn
Bare trunk and bare branches ~ her leaves have all gone
Freezing and breezing and covered in snow
Rejected ~ dejected and so full of woe !
MY TREE IN THE SPRING ~ a much happier creature
Bright green her leaves and blossom her feature
Song birds are nesting and singing all day
In the roots and the branches ~ there are squirrels at play !
MY TREE IN THE SUMMER ~ majestic her sight
Her leaves photosynthetic ~ and they switch off at night
Shade to sit under ~ fruit and nuts to enjoy
My Tree in the Summer ~ I climbed as a Boy !
MY TREE IN THE AUTUMN ~ She acts very strange
From just GREEN to a RAINBOW her leaves start to change
Red ~ Orange ~ Yellow ~ Green ~ Blue and Violet
And then they turn Brown and fall down to Earth ~ silent !
