Friendly Tree, This Is Your Day

by Annette Wynne

Friendly tree, this is your day,
So we'll stop our work and play
And talk of you,
And all the good things that you do.

Standing still and quiet there,
Sending branches into air,
Making pleasant shade around,
Delving far beneath the ground,
Holding all year safe from harm
Little nests within your arm,
Keeping firmly where you are,
Reaching up to touch a star,
Growing, working, just as I,
Seeking God within the sky.
