Many versions of this remarkable poem abound, each with slightly different sentiments. But this is my favorite. I ask that the next time you walk toward your school, and hopefully see a gorgeous big tree, that you will take a moment to reflect upon the wisdom it offers each of us.
Wisdom From A Tree
remember your roots
reach for the sky
learn to turn over a new leaf
remember to bend before you break
take time to appreciate beauty
always keep growing
never forget that a mighty oak began as a twig
cherish every day
enjoy the view
