I Made A List (kids poem)

I made a list
of words that grew on trees:
bark, fruit,
branches, leaves.

Then I decided
to make another;
smell, shade,
bend, color.

Then going further
I made one more:
forest: two,
three, four…

Finally I decided
to finish my list;
living, thing,
future, past.

By that time,
a little later,
I still had ink
but no paper.
