HAVE YOU HUGGED A TREE TODAY?

When ever you are feeling blue

and don’t know what you ought to do,

take a little tip from me and

go outside and hug a tree

You may encounter little ants,

don’t get them on  your shirt  or pants,

You’ll find it’s really just  breeze.

going outside and hugging trees,

 

I hugged a tree in the Redwood Forest,

It was far too big, but of course it is,

You can only hug a wee small part,

It still does good for your human heart

 

Next time you need a gentle lift,

Go hug a tree, it’s a precious gift,

The only thing that you’ll find it lacks,

is that the tree doesn’t hug you back.
