Five Little Trees


Five Little Evergreens Five Little Evergreens Outside In Row

The First One Said, "Let's Look At The Snow"

The Second One Said, "Oh-Oh, It's Getting Cold"

The Third One Said, "Christmas Is Coming So I'm Told"

The Fourth One Said, "I Hope Someone Decorates Me"

The Fifth One Said, "We'll Just Have To Wait And See"

Why Christmas Trees Aren't Perfect

Long, Long Ago, In A Land Far Away
Lived A Perfect Little Tree Named Small Pine
Small Pine Hoped To Maintain Its Perfect Form
And Be Selected By The Queen As Her Christmas Tree
But As The WarmHearted Little Tree Gave Shelter To
Birds, Rabbits And Deer In The Forest
Its Branches Became Damaged

Fortunately The Queen Had A Different Idea Of Perfection
The Queen, Queen's Family And All The Villagers
Said That Small Pine Was The Finest Christmas Tree Yet
For In Looking At Its Drooping, Nibbled Branches
They Saw The Protecting Arm Of Their Father
Or The Comforting Lap Of A Mother
And Some, Like The Wise Queen
Saw The Love Of Christ Expressed On Earth

So If You Walk Among Evergreens Today
You Will Find
Along With Rabbits, Birds And Other Happy Living Things
Many Trees Like Small Pine
You Will See A Drooping Limb
Which Gives Cover
A Gap Offering A Warm Resting Place
Or Branches Ragged From Feeding Hungry Animals

For
As Have Many Of Us
The Trees Have Learned
That Living For The Sake Of Others
Makes Us Most Beautiful In The Eyes Of God
