bees buzz
birds cry
the old tree stands

winds wail
trees sway
the old tree stands

the kids climb
the kids fall
the old tree stands

the houses build
the people move
the old tree stands

the people depart
the animals return
the old tree stands

civilizations rise and fall
but forever the old tree stands

I really like this poem. It's ends with the same line but its a perfect flow to it.
