Land So Bare

A singing bird, a shining sun,
Two little children go out for some fun,
Up a hill, over another,
Then they see it, land so bare,
I wonder if trees
were ever there?
Animals roamed, butterflies fluttered
Life was good, ever so fresh
The treetops swayed like they were happy in some way,
Saying g'day to one another
Giving us life, giving us air
Then man came and
Took us away from there
Then we opened our eyes
And soon realised what we have done to the land so bare
Then I wondered, if trees were ever really there?
