How long does it take a tree to grow?
More often than not, they’re taken for granted.
A little cabin, surrounded by trees,
Who all were planted by tender hands.
The swirly tree, with a worn trunk,
Where many times kids sat to ponder.
Or the trail, where the trees lead the way,
Bending over to form a romantic canopy.
