At birth we're nothing more you see Than just a sapling of a tree. A tree that sprouts up in the spring To show new life to everything.
We stay this way for a quiet time Then, like the tree, we learn to climb Unlike the tree which grows alone We must be taught the art at home.
"As the twig is bent so grows the tree." It's much the same with you and me For as we're taught, so will we grow And what we learn is all we'll know.
If we permit within this life The little bird with all its strife To land upon our limbs and sing Then we'll be like the tree in spring.
In later, life when in our teens If we should act like kings or queens The value of our fruit will be That equal to the great oak tree.
The colour of our locks of hair Is like the leaves the tree will wear And all too soon, in life we find The summer time we've left behind
Thus in the fall the leaves doth turn Just as in life for youth we yearn For in the fall of life you see Again we are just like the tree.
The tree must show in colours bright That soon the wind will chill the night. 'Tis time for man just past his prime To settle down for winter time.
In wintertime, the tree is bare With nests, where robins struggled there The same is true when mortal man Has always done the best he can.
When in this life of you or me If we have been what we should be There is no place for deep regret For, like the tree, we still live yet.
