The Tree


The child planted the seed but it did not grow
So he prayed to god and its fruit he did sow
The child loved the leaves but winter came and fell they did
So he prayed again and the snow God did rid
The child grew older and watered it with doubt
So summer came and with it brought drought
The child cursed God for he had none to reap
So the next day his neighbors found him slain beneath the tree
