Tree buds a bloomin

Spring is a zoomin

To turn the world green

The leaves will be poppin

There just ain’t no stoppin

That photosynthetic scene

Tree roots are a suckin

Ground water that’s been truckin

From the surface down into the ground

Sap’s been a climbin

Up tree trunks for primin

Tiny leaves that will soon abound

It happens quite quickly

It’s done very slickly

The springtime eruption of green

From the winters bare branches

To springs new leaf ranches

What a magical transformation is seen
