Working with the Poem

Question 1: What are the games or human activities which use trees, or in which trees also ‘participate’?


Trees are used for tree houses, swings, hide-and-seek, in summer for shade, in winter for campfires, for fruit and wood and for many other things.


Question 2:

(i) “Trees are to make no shade in winter.” What does this mean?(Contrast this line with the line immediately before it.)


In the winter, we build a fire with tree wood to stay warm. Trees provide a cool shade during the summer, so we don't have to suffer from the hot sun. In winter, trees shed their leaves so people can enjoy the sun. Hence, trees are to make no shade in winter.


(ii) “Trees are for apples to grow on, or pears.” Do you agree that one purpose of a tree is to have fruit on it? Or do you think this line is humorous?


Well, trees make fruits to hide their seeds so they can grow more trees. And these fruits are food for us. Thus, this line is humorous, as trees let fruit grow on them, and people eat the fruit that grows under them.


Question 3: With the help of your partner, try to rewrite some lines in the poem, or add new ones of your own as in the following examples.

Trees are for birds to build nests in. Trees are for people to sit under.

Now try to compose a similar poem about water, or air.


Trees are for sweet fruits. Tress take away our tiredness. Trees are oxygen.

Drink water or bathe in water,

You can never imagine life without water. Pure water or impure water,

Save the every drop of water.
