A tossed seed, a lost seed, an underground after frost seed,
A new sprout, a true sprout, a covered in morning dew sprout,
A young seedling, a swung seedling, a song that’s yet to be sung seedling,
A root tree, a fruit tree, a home for critters to boot tree,
A white flower, a bright flower, a petals fall and take flight flower,
A sweet fruit, a treat fruit, a grab as much as you can eat fruit,
A found seed, a ground seed, a life cycle round and round seed.
