WATCHING THE

MONEY TREE GROW

 

By Josie Whitehead 

Watching the Money Tree Grow

Mr Greedy bought a money tree
     Which was so very small.
He planted it and cared for it
     And watched as it grew tall.

He wouldn’t take a holiday
     And couldn’t even sleep,
For he guarded it and nurtured it
     Like a shepherd with his sheep.

This lack of sleep and worry
     Caused Old Greedy to get ill.
He didn’t live till harvest-time
     To see his dreams fulfilled.

Remember Mr Greedy 
     When you think about your wealth
For there’s more to life than money
     There’s your happiness and health!
