A single ray fell, illuminated a tiny speck of Earth
and from that marriage of light & soil, it took birth.
Such was the love between land and heaven
that when together, the sapling’s birth was a given.
A tiny life, so precious that took on a form of its own.
Such was the magic of sunshine that resplendent it shone.
The light and soil nurtured it as best that they could,
Uncle water pitched in too, as often family should.
And soon it grew tall and mighty, standing proud.
Oh! So magnificent it looked even in the crowd.
Heaven and Earth took a bow, as proud parents should;
Sunshine smiled happily, it had done what it could.
