Everyone Needs A Friend

The boy loved the trees very much

He mixed shadow into their shade
and painted details in their branches

Big strong arms
that held the weight of the forest

The brush would climb up their trunk
and gather their leaves

Making them into a crown
and playing king of the canvas

And the trees were happy
