We Are Not Like Trees

A cherry tree can't grow an acorn

Nor an oak a cherry set

And a tree that has not felt the ax

Knows not one it should fret.

But we are not at all like trees

Except like them we die

And though we both can feel the rain

'T is only we who lie.

But if I were a tree, I think I'd want to be a very tall one! Another great poem!!!
