Artist's Description

My sister, Nancy, took this picture of a maple tree she and my brother-inlaw planted in memory of our Dad. Our Dad loved birdwatching and guess what she found in the tree……a bird’s nest. I heard the song, Tree Song on You Tube and thought Dad would have enjoyed this song. Photograph taken in a small town in Indiana.

Tree Song by Ken Medema
I saw a tree by the riverside one day as I walked along.
Straight as an arrow and pointing to the sky growing tall and strong.
“How do you grow so tall and strong?” I said to the riverside tree.
This is the song my tree friend sang to me:
Chorus:
I’ve got roots growing down to the water,
I’ve got leaves growing up to the sunshine,
and the fruit that I bear is a sign of the life in me.
I am shade from the hot summer sundown.
I am nest for the birds of the heavens.
I’m becoming what the Lord of trees has meant me to be:
A strong young tree.
I saw a tree in the wintertime, when snow lay on the ground.
Straight as an arrow and pointing to the sky winter winds blew all around.
“How do you stay so tall and strong?” I said to the wintertime tree.
This is the song my tree friend sang to me:
Chorus:
I’ve got roots growing down to the water,
I’ve got leaves growing up to the sunshine,
and the fruit that I bear is a sign of the life in me.
I am shade from the hot summer sundown.
I am nest for the birds of the heavens.
I’m becoming what the Lord of trees has meant me to be:
A strong young tree.
I saw a tree in the city streets, where buildings blocked the sun.
Green and lovely I could see it gave joy to everyone.
“How do you grow in the city streets?” I said to the downtown tree.
This is the song my tree friend sang to me:
Chorus:
I’ve got roots growing down to the water,
I’ve got leaves growing up to the sunshine,
and the fruit that I bear is a sign of the life in me.
I am shade from the hot summer sundown.
I am nest for the birds of the heavens.
I’m becoming what the Lord of trees has meant me to be:
A strong young tree.
