By grasping ground the trees submit then stand To face the stormy weather, hot or cold. Winds slap their leaves with branches fully fanned Yet year by year they grow on land they hold. Small habits starting weak turn strong and bold. They would not hesitate if they could voice Their affirmations - life would be the choice. They welcome all who aid their living there. They fix one spot then from that spot rejoice And offer wayward folk refreshing air.
