It was the smoke that made the oak choke
and wondering how to cope.
But what made the gum so glum,
The peppercorn all forlorn,
The pine pine for a better time,
The ash feeling that its hopes were dashed,
The cedar leave with a mysterious fever ?
Finally the elm took the helm
To steer the trees
With the help of a breeze
To a blessed forest
and they all turned over a new leaf !
A silly rhyme with trees.
