Greener glow in green.
Thick bark, proud I look to the world,
Tree standing tall among all
Comforter! provider! flawless!
Healer of the sick, richness to the poor.
Darkness descended; forces I see not,
Shields of disappointments came forth,
I turned yellow! I fell! I dried up!
Oh! The pain; all covered in shame I was
Tears I could not shed
Death beseeched me.
Out of the corners of the earth,
A loud sound came; Fear not, ye cried,
Shaft of light glistered from the depth,
Whom I know not came forth.
Thirst I feel no more; downcast no more.
I turned up from earth to the sky again,
I stood out, greener than before,
Tiny tots I bear again! again! again!
Nay he says, the end comes for you not.
You are greener I say; always greener will be.
