Summer saw gentle Mr. Birch
grow strong and supple and tall.
But then the winds grew bitter,
to herald the start of fall.

With the chilling wind came rain,
then frost and sleet did blow.
Poor Mr. Birch, he caught a cold
and really did feel low.

And so it came to pass one day
he expelled a mighty sneeze.
The power of his quivering
dislodged his lovely leaves.

Now Mr. Birch stands shivering,
naked as a babe
and waits for Spring to usher in
the buds of growth again.
