Let the Trees

Let the trees rise to the sky
where the blue birds fly.

Let the trees dance at night with
its leaves falling on the ground.

Let the trees see at night with the
stars shining.

Let the tall trees sing at night
with the wind blowing the leaves, singing
sh, sh, sh.

Let the trees have lots of leaves
with the leaves different
colors—green, yellow, red, orange,
blue, purple, or pink.

Let the trees have lots of branches
with leaves all over.

Let the trees grow
apples big and small.

Let the trees
grow taller and taller.
