Are you like the sturdy oak
Whose leaves hang on until the end?
The longtime, loyal steadfast kind
That makes a wonderful friend.
Are you like the weeping willow
Pliant, flexible as wind gusts blow?
Your openess to changing times
Is a helpful friend to know.
Are you like the graceful palm
Whose long fronds thatch a tropical home?
Some provide dates and coconuts
Food for those who roam.
