THE AGE OF A TREE

The tree is tall and strong.
But how old is it?
That’s a simple thing to tell.
Just count the rings.

The New Year brings new growth.
Another layer added.
Each year without fail
A wider girth around the middle

Just count the rings to find the age.
I knew this about the tree.
What surprised me though,
Is when the same thing happened to me.
