*Arbor Day (last Friday in April)
Trees, trees, glorious trees,
Full of raccoons and beetles and bees,
Full of red robins and woodpeckers too,
And if youâ€™ve a tree house, perhaps full of YOU!
It isnâ€™t just meant for the green leafy trees,
The bark and the branches, the roots and the leaves.
Arbor Day means you should stop for a minute,
In front of a tree, and considerÂ whatâ€™s IN IT!
That’s a little poem from a picture book that will probably never see the light-o-day, “12 Months of Silly: a neglected holiday songbook.” The premise of the book is that Xmas has stolen all the songs, so that poor holidays like Arbor Day and Halloween get no musical love…
Hence the “never see light-o-day” thang.
Hope you like it!
Also, may I take a moment to say that my parents didn’t love me enough to provide me with a treehouse.Â For which I continue to resent them.
