~*` THE JOYS OF A TREE `*~
~*~` THE JOYS OF A TREE `~*~
The sun shines brightly shinning through the trees
With bouncing sunbeams dancing on its dewy leaves,
It stretches its branches upwards towards the sky
As its leaves merrily dance when a breeze flows by.
God blessed the created tree for you and me to see
He takes care of all of His creatures, even the bee,
Branches nest a home for birds to protect their young
Nectar in its flowers for the bee who has not stung.
Its limbs are a playground for our very active young
A swing hung low can bring much laughter and fun,
Heavy laden branches gives shade to a weary soul
Comforting the aged with a haven's rest after a stroll,
A quiet place to indulge in meeting a friend or lover
To advise or listen to undeciding trials of another.
Yes, God created the universal tree for all of us to see
The many splendid wonders found in just one lone tree,
If he has done all of this for a tree, a bird and a bee
Imagine all he has done for you and me for
~`ONE AS GREAT AS HE`.
