GEDILI SAAR 9A OUR FAVOURITE POEM NO 1. I am a tree. I have eyes and ears. I can see what you are Doing with my forest. I am a tree. I have a soul. I can feel when you Break my branch. I am a tree. I have a heart. I can feel when you love me. I can see Everything what you are doing â€Ś So think. Before you do something or later You will regret it.
OONA ELISE MARIE LUIK 8A OUR FAVOURITE POEM NO 2. I am a tree I’m never gonna be free I will be cut off Or burned, there’s nothing between I don’t like my life I often get burnmarks and see knives I think it’s so cruel To kill or damage us before we grow old. Often humans plant us, But they are the ones who cut us off. Some trees are burned, some are damaged, And noone even cares. I wish humans knew how much it hurts To see your friends die and to die yourself.
MIHHAIL ANISSIMOV 9B OUR FAVOURITE POEM NO 3. I am a tree, a big palm tree growing in Mexico, it smells like burrito. I see a bar where a man drinks mohito I see a teen selling drugs, Now he got million bucks. I saw a murder yesterday, what do I have to say? Itâ€™s a normal, normal day in Mexico.

ERIC TĹ ERNAVSKIHH I am a tree! I'm old but intelligent. Lived for a little over a year and everything I see here I like.

Those songs are written or Thereâ€™s text about life and dream. I am a tree!

MICHELLE BALAK 8C I am a tree Standing on this hill. There are no other trees Just some bushes And those things That crawl over me. I am a tree, Standing on this hill, Watching the wind blow. The rain pour, the sky darken And my leaves go away from me. I am just a tree, I am very lonely.

JOHANNA TUULEVESKI 8C I’m a tree Young and pretty. I’m still fragile a little And sensitive to my roots. I’m a tree Which still requires protection. From storms and wind, Which may break me. I’m a tree, Which falls asleep for months, Waiting for the morning light; The beginning of a new day.
ANNABEL KOOTS 8C I’m a fir tree I can play football Seeing the ball in the grass I run to kick it. I like playing with children, But sometimes they break my branch. I don’t like it And then I cry. I am 78 years old And not a tired tree. I’ll grow for many years And will be a big tree.
RAGNAR VALDRE 8C Iâ€™m an oak Very big and strong I donâ€™t like my neighbours Because they are not tall. I like the birds Who come to sing. They are beautiful With their angelic voice. But the people are mean, They cut us down With their axes or fire.
GERLI GRETSKI 8C I am a tree. I like rain, But I donâ€™t like pain. I like the wind. When the wind is strong I can swing. I like children, But if they break my branches I get mad and throw them off. I am an old tree I can remember the 80s. People were friendlier And didnâ€™t hurt me.

RAUNO TALUSAAR 9B I woke up this morning with an idea I would like to be a tree. I would be an old and large oak tree. A century old oak tree, A dark green oak tree.

ERELY JOHANSON 9B I’m a tree I’m living outside. I’m a tree, In autumn leaves are falling off me. And in winter There’s snow on top of me. In the summer I’m green. I’m a little tree: A, B, C And I’m a very happy tree. I’m a tree And my body is brown. I’m an ordinary tree.
