Sun shines through leaves on trees,
Painting them different shades of green.
Leaves form chorus of greens,
Sing with the birds.
Butterflies flit through singing leaves,
Dragonflies absorb their light.
Shade protects undergrowth, butterflies,
And hikers from hot rays.
Keeps them from stinking;
Keeps the air fresh.
Shade hides spider from view,
Like the hollow log,
Hides all its secrets.
Leaf casts a shadow.
