• In the yard there grew a tree,
    Massive and great with
    Hefty branches that stretched
    tab Up and up and up
    For a hundred years.

    On those branches were
    A million leaves, with veins
    That soaked the sun and
    tab grew and grew and grew
    for a hundred years.

    The seasons came and changed
    The tree, caused the leaves to go
    Green to gold to brown to gone
    tab Over and over and over
    For a hundred years.

    Until one day the tree fell down,
    tab Down and down and down
    As the branches
    tab Snapped and snapped and snapped
    And the leaves turned
    tab Brown and brown and brown

    For the tree had been rotting
    tab From the inside out
    tab tab For a hundred years.
