SEE THE BUSY TREE
See the busy tree - out in the sun,
Soaking up rays - and oxygen.
See the trees roots – how they grow down,
They’re soaking up water – from the ground.
Using these three elements – and making them just so,
The tree makes its own food – so that it can grow.
But when it has extra – oxygen, water and sun
It also makes Chlorophyll – just for fun.
It coats its leaves with Chlorophyll – so now they all - green.
And all through the summer, - they have a lovely sheen.
But when the days grow shorter – and the earth begins to dry,
All the things the tree needs – are now in short supply.
So the tree stops making – Chlorophyll at all
And then the leaves return - to their own color - in the Fall.
