shush-ing the oak tree

Leaves 2

shu-shu-shush

the oak tree
is dreaming

shu-shu-shush

his leaves
are all leaving

shu-shu-shush

he’s not paying attention
to you
or to me

shu-shu-shush

maybe he’s listening

shu-shu-shush

let’s sing
he might hear us

shu-shu-shush

let’s shu-shu-shu-shu
shuffle his music
along

shu-shu-shush

let’s shuffle his music
in this song

Leaves 1
