Question Answer
Line 1Trees are the kindest things I know,
Line 2They do no harm, they simply grow.
Line 3And spread a shade for sleepy cows,
Line 4And gather birds among their boughs.
Line 5They give us fruit in leaves above,
Line 6And wood to make our houses of,
Line 7And leaves to burn on Hallowe'en,
Line 8And in the Spring new buds of green.
Line 9They are the first when day's begun
Line 10To touch the beams of morning sun,
Line 11They are the last to hold the light
Line 12When evening changes into night,
Line 13And when a moon floats on the sky
Line 14They hum a drowsy lullaby
Line 15Of sleepy children long ago
Line 16Trees are the kindest things I know.
