One for the Trees

In spring you bloom and give birds a place to rest,
In summer you give travellers a reason for some zest.
In autumn you disguise yourself with golden, yellow and red,
And after a while, you shed.

And in the winter, you wait and wait for spring to be back,
That's how your life gets back on track!

Then,
The cycle starts again,
And the birds come back to make their nests.

But one day someone nasty cuts you from the roots,
And then you think your life has come to an end.

But wait, there's more!

A fruit fell down from your branch,
And ten years later, it grew up to be taller that you.

Its life story was just the same,
But when the nasty person came yet again,
The birds said to him,
"Don't you have ANY shame?!"


- Ragini Zutshi Anand

The green of the trees, the pink of the flowers, goes well with the winter season
