Let me live.

English Poems Index

Let me live.

Once I was a tiny seed.

Mother Nature cared my need.

I grew up as a shady tree.

Now my age is twenty three.

I have branches so many.

For children to play in company,

I feed worms with tiny figs.

I make homes with tiny twigs.

I am for the resting herds.

Also for the poor shepherds.

People breathe the air I give.

Why do not people let me live.
