A Tree Like Me
Inspired by catch phrases used by author Lynn Hill's mother, "A Tree Like Me" offers new ways of looking at life and finding solutions through poetry. A good teacher measures as well as inspires those around them to grow. Come along on a lyrical journey into the thoughts and feelings that drive everyday life! "A Tree Like Me Of all the things in this world to be, I wondered. What if there were a tree like me? I wouldn't have to walk, but through life I'd go anyway. I'd have many adventures, for underneath my branches as they sway ... Lovers will kiss, books will be read, and children will play at my feet. I'll have my share of sunshine, rain, snow, and even sleet. As the wind blows, I'll shake free! bend but not break. Having strong roots, these things I'll be able to take. You know, there's a trick to being able to bend and not break. Oh! how my shadow will cast its spell ... For my leaves will have a story to tell. Like a tree that bears good fruit, My children will grow from strong roots. Though alone in the meadow I continue to strive. I would have held many creatures, And shaded many lives."
