i grew up in a town that did not have a lot of trees due to being flat windy and by the seaside, but i love just sitting under a tree in the summer. this is about trees enduring the seasons.........

Trees
I look at the trees as I drive along
All barren and sad and bare
No leaves to keep them warm
But they don’t seem to care
They know when winter’s over
And we’re heading into Spring
They’ll see their buds shooting
Leaves spreading everywhere
Come Summer they know
When the weather is so hot
We’ll take shelter under their leaves
Catch our breath in their shadow
The wind blowing through them
Makes such a wonderful sound
Then when come the Autumn
Their leaves fall on the ground
What joy it brings to me
Kicking up leaves for fun
Seeing themyriad of colours
From gold to russet to brown
I look at the trees as I drive along
All barren and sad and bare
Three seasons of joy they bring
Now I know why they don’t care.
