The trees stretched out by the waters edge of a lake
With the birds flying over the tree tops looking for food,
Seeing the worms on the top soil with fish swimming going down stream.
With frogs on lily pads in the clear water near the edges of the lake
They sit waiting for flies to come by to eat for lunch,
While the fairies are flying around the flowers even dance on the petals.
The snakes are slithering to the lake to keep warm
They are looking for rodents to eat for a snack,
Seeing rabbits eating grass by the trees as the morning dew goes.
While the bees are flying around landing on flowers gathering nectar
With the butterflies fluttering their wings showing their colors,
Near a babbling stream with butterfly flowers with bushes all lush to see.
