CLIMBING A TREE

to see. Mom and
Dad said Jesus
was in Heaven so I have
to find out for myself.
Careful now
some branches are
sharp on the tree boughs
and last time I climbed
I was only six and I fell all
the way to the
bottom but not before
breaking my arm.
Now I sing:
1-2-3 you will see
I can be careful
climbing this tree.
