4th Grade Celebrates Arbor Day 2013

Advice from a Tree

By Illan Shamir

Dear Friend,

Stand Tall and Proud

Sink your roots deeply into the Earth

Reflect the light of a greater source

Think long term

Go out on a limb

Remember your place among all living beings

Embrace with joy the changing seasons

For each yields its own abundance

The energy and birth of Spring

The growth and Contentment of Summer

The wisdom to let go of leaves in the Fall

The Rest and Quiet Renewal of Winter

Feel the wind and the sun

And delight in their presence

Look up at the moon that shines down upon

And the mystery of the stars at night

Seek nourishment from the good things in

Simple pleasures

Earth, fresh air, light

 Be content with your natural beauty

Drink plenty of water

Let your limbs sway and dance in the breeze

Be flexible

Remember your roots

Enjoy the view!
