A tree

A seed in the earth
Some wetness gives it life
It moves, it grows
It bursts through the ground
A small green bud appears

It stretches for the sun
Some wetness helps it grow
It moves, it reaches for the sky
Branches form small green leaves

Reaching for the sun
It hopes for some wetness
It moves, it grows
It now has become full of green leaves and beautiful red flowers

Hummingbirds visit it every day
Singing beautiful songs only it understands

It loves the earth
And the earth cherishes it
It wants to live forever
It needs some wetness
It drinks with a healthy appetite

It moves, it grows
It has many friends
Friends that rely on it for a place to live
It wants to be here forever
