Poem: A Tree


treeA poem by Showey Yazdanian (age eight)

What do you plant when you plant a tree?

You plant a table for you and for me.

When you plant a tree, what you have in all

Is a lovely bookshelf on the wall.

When you plant a tree, what is done?

A window ledge and frame, to look at the sun.

See what you plant when you plant a tree?

You plant almost anything that there can be.**
