Circle of Trees Poem

Author DLFD Christopher Buja, Written Jul 28, 2014

During Children’s Chapel on July 27, 2014 one of the activities we did was read and listen to poems about trees.
And then the children co-created their own poem, using the format of a “five senses” poem as they imagined themselves being out and about among the trees.  Here is their poem:

I see…leafy branches, the bark of a tree, the whole class, big huge trees, and you…

I feel…the grass on the ground, you, my nose, the hard wood of the trunk, and my mom and dad…

I taste…a picnic lunch, the sap, the rain through the leaves, cheese bagels, and pears…

I hear…the branches clattering together, the branches clattering together again, bumping, the loud wind rattling the leaves, and the stream…

I smell…wildflowers, yellow flowers, picnic lunch, you, orange flowers, and animal dirt…
