A Tree

Where comes a tree?
a seed planted deep
into the ground of earth
from which it does leap

This then produces wood
grows many metres tall
with branches sprung out
in time its leaves do fall

The paper you write upon
is made from this wood
what would you do?
a pen alone is no good 

So next time you write
think on all of this
that little seed planted
brings you poetic bliss
