This Tree

This Tree

Written By: Katie Case


This tree

It sits alone, but is alive

Isolated, but happy

And green


But quite old


This tree

Becomes tainted by people

For they ruin

And the tree changes

From green to brown


This tree

No longer green

But an ugly brown

It lies sad and in ruin

And begins to fall


This tree

No green

No beauty

But brown

Is now gone
