Life of a Tree

I am naked now, my limbs are bare
A chill blows through me during the night air

No one notices me, children do not climb
I stand still hoping not to lose a branch of mine

No green, no orange, no red I am just grey
This season I do not like because of being this way

Soon the sun will begin to show
My little buds of color start to glow

Encircled by luscious green grass I will be
Seasons are my life, this next one I like.

    Lovely, Holly. Yes...spring brings hope of renewal and new life! Love this use of personification! "I think that I shall never see..a poem lovely as a tree"...fits this work of yours so well. There is beauty in your words! Hugs!
