The Apple Tree
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     I am a tree. Not just any tree. I am an apple tree.
 
2     In the winter, I sleep. I do not feel the cold.
 
3     The farmer comes while I sleep. He trims my branches. He does not want me to grow too tall. The farmer wants me to grow strong.
 
4     He wants me to grow wide. It will make picking apples easy.
 
5     The cold is good. I am in a deep sleep. I do not feel storms. The snow is a blanket for me.
 
6     Soon spring comes. The snow melts away. I begin to wake. The sap begins to run. It moves from my roots to my branches.
 
7     The buds begin to swell. Soon they open into leaves and flowers.
 
8     My flowers are white. They each have five petals. There are so many! They cover me like snow.
