The Tree

February 25, 2008
By Erika Johnson, Wilmington, MA

There is a tree
That stands for everyone to see

It Teaches peace
To all who listen

It Shows love
Even to the blind

It Hands out happiness
To the lonely

It feels pain
For those suffering

It smells out trouble
To steer kids straight

It feeds
The hungry

It watches over
The children of the world

This tree stands for everyone
Who believes
