Planting time ~~ a Poem


Plant a tree for Grandmother

We'll plant a tree in Grandmother's garden
We'll plant it were she can see
We'll pick a fine one for our Grandmother
One with limbs so strait and green

We'll pick a tree for Grandmother's garden
We'll pick a small tree to grow
With Grandmother we'll watch it grow up tall
Tall to brave the wind and rain
We'll pick a fruit tree for Grandma's garden
We'll pick one to bear her fruit
We'll pick a fruit tree for our Grandmother
An apple or an orange

We'll help pick the fruit from Grandmother's tree
We'll pick some fruit just for her
We'll make a fruit pie for our Grandmother
She'll be happy when she eats

Children plant a tree for your Grandmother
You'll make her happy indeed
Every grandmother loves her grandchildren
Please plant her a tree today

I love this idea of planting a fruit tree for Grandmother. And planting it where she can see it. Lovely, Jim.

What a beautiful idea to show one's love for their grandmother. What a touching poem Jim.

I really love the thought of planting a tree for someone else... (and I think I can plant some for myself as well)

I didn't plant the tree, but Grandma had cherry trees in her back yard and she made the best pies from them!
