I Hugged a Tree (A Poem)


I saw this huge tree standing tall in the forest.

I had walked so far in the forest that I had to stop for a rest.

The tree looked so old and big like my grandfather.

I wanted to see it from afar so I stepped away farther and farther.

I have never seen such a tree not even in my story book.

I’ll show a photo of this tree to my best friend and say – look, look.

I think the tree likes me and wants me to hug it.

But try as I might with the tree trunk, I can’t make my arms around it fit.

Why am I so small and this tree so big?

If my grandfather looks up this tree, he is sure to drop his wig.

Tomorrow when I go to school, I will tell my teacher about this tree.

I will tell her that when I saw this tree, I felt so happy and free.

I think my parents are calling me now.

Bye bye tree, but I have to say that my day with you was full of wow. ā˜ŗ
