The trees started off small
Tiny compared to their parents
The saplings sleeping in their bed of soil
The animals that lived there
Shared the spoils, feeding the tree
while eating the fruit
And slowly the trees
headed for the sky
and from the tops little birds fly
While down below
where the roots they grow
the animals are protected from wind, rain and snow
