The Little Tree

Dorothy and Christian
Planted a little tree
At the cemetery
For their granddaughter, Christie.
The hard wind pushed the tree down,
So Christian braced the tree up
And Dorothy nursed the little tree.
When that first winter came to spring
Christie’s little tree had very few leaves.
Dorothy nursed the tree all summer
Christian braced it up through the winter
And in the spring
Christie’s little tree bloomed.
