Wishing Tree

Whoever doesn’t believe

In wishing trees

Has never crossed paths

With this special species;

As gifts to pick

Wishes hang from branches

For the lucky few

They provide second chances;

But these wishes aren’t granted

Without a cost

Pick too many

And good fortune you’ll have lost;

But if you plant a wish

On chosen ground

Up will spring a tree

With new wishes to be found;

It’s the cycle of life

That keeps the wishing tree alive

And a few rules

Ensure this special tree survives;

You must always be thankful

And always believe

Wishes grow on trees

Even when there are no leaves;

Never be greedy

And if you pick more than one

Always plant the second

For the generations to come

Thanks for stopping by!
