Three Little Trees

Three Little Trees




I heard a song about three little trees.

How they dreamed; what would they be.



And over the years they grew straight and tall.

One day they heard the noise of the axe and the saw.



The first little tree visualized a great barn with a large hay loft.

But, the first was used to make a stable and a trough



The second little tree visualized a great ship with varnished coats.

Yet, the second was used to make a small fishing boat.



But the third little tree only wanted to point toward the sky.

Yet, the third was used to make a cross, where a man died.



But there in the stable God did uplift;

The first little tree saw God perfect gift.



And later in Galilee another blessing was done;

The second little tree carried Godís only son.



Alas, the third little tree stood on a hill side, bloody and scored.

And God said donít be sad, youíre pointing the way to the Lord.

Irv, I have read something similiar of a story of how the tree who wanted to be something
ended up being the cross. This reminds me of that story. Truly your writing style is remarkable.
You remind me of a friend of mine on another forum who writes like you do. Blessings.
