The Leaf

God’s simple beauty, beyond compare

Nature’s bounty everywhere

So much to smell–so much to see

Let’s take the Stately Old Oak Tree

Six hundred species, big family and strong

but how do you prove that you really belong

Examine my LEAF said the Little Sprout

that will tell you what I’m all about.

One of these years I’ll drop an acorn

and be a hundred feet tall

but until then–I’ll show you my colors

they will be blazing–just wait until Fall!oak-791737_640
