DLTK's Crafts for Kids
The Little Fir-Trees  

by Evaleen Stein

Hey! little evergreens,
  Sturdy and strong!
Summer and autumn time
  Hasten along;
Harvest the sunbeams, then,
  Bind them in sheaves,
Range them, and change them
  To tufts of green leaves.
Delve in the mellow mold,
  Far, far below,
   And so,
  Little evergreens, grow!
   Grow, grow!
Grow, little evergreens, grow! 

 Up, up so airily
  To the blue sky,
Lift up your leafy tips
  Stately and high;
Clasp tight your tiny cones,
  Tawny and brown;
By and by, buffeting
  Rains will pelt down;
By and by, bitterly
  Chill winds will blow;
   And so,
  Little evergreens, grow!
  Grow, grow!
Grow, little evergreens, grow!
 

 Gather all uttermost
  Beauty, because,--
Hark, till I tell it now!
  How Santa Claus,
Out of the northern land,
  Over the seas,
Soon shall come seeking you,
  Evergreen trees!
Seek you with reindeer soon,
  Over the snow;
   And so,
  Little evergreens, grow!
   Grow, grow!
Grow, little evergreens, grow!

What if the maples flare
  Flaunting and red,
You shall wear waxen white
  Tapers instead!
What if now, otherwhere,
  Birds are beguiled,
You shall yet nestle
  The little Christ-child!
Ah! the strange splendor
  The fir-trees shall know!
   And so,
  Little evergreens, grow!
   Grow, grow!
Grow, little evergreens, grow!
