Little Tree
(Joe Stevens)
Originally recorded on
Ear To The Ground

Little tree, the moon is high
Darkness covers the world tonight
From your tiny seed, I’ve watched you grow
Cradled in the dirt, your soul
The earth will teach you all it knows

Little tree, don’t be afraid
Dream your dreams of making shade
If the wind blows strong, then learn to bend
If the fire burns, don’t fear the end
Take joy in holding a nest for a friend

Little tree, the sun is here
There’s a reason you were planted here
Though you may be weak and small today
May your roots grow deep so you may sway
You’re of this world, this beautiful day
