A Song In Ever Tree Poem by Jim Yerman

A Song In Ever Tree

Wonders come in an array of shapes and sizes…so many different kinds
You never know from day to day what wonders you might find.

A daughter walking with her mother
to her mom's hand the daughter was clinging
when, suddenly she stopped, "Mom, listen!I think this tree is singing."

So they stopped to listen for a moment as the tree completed her song
and the mother began to smile when the daughter sang along.

The mother felt a wonder she didn't know this day would bring
when her daughter turned to her and said,
"I never knew that trees could sing."

Here the mother had a mild dilemma…
Should she solve this little mystery?
Should she tell her daughter there is a hidden bird singing in the tree?

Before she had the chance to speak
while to her mom's hand she was still clinging
her daughter said, "Mom, over there…another tree is singing."

Yes, wonders come in many shapes and sizes
You never know how they'll unfurl…
Today's wonder for the mother came in the shape of her little girl…

Who as they walked hand in hand together helped her mother see
when you stop to listen…
there is a song in every tree.
