In My Mind This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

     I am like a tree

With different sides of me

Standing very tall

Just for all to see

Nature views me silently

I see the world so quietly

I’m merry during spring and summer

Bright and full of bloom

I grow and grow so they will know

That I am no Willow

Autumn comes so suddenly

I change most visibly

I listen to the wind more often

Speaking with a rapid rustle

My leaves fall down

Onto the ground

No more will they be seen

Autumn changes into winter

Invisibility

When I see the sun draw near

I know it’s time for spring.
