I saw a tree in the garden

That was green like a parrot

That was beautiful as a flower

That touched my heart

When a leaf of the tree fell on my head

It felt like a blessing from a hearty God

When the gardener watered the tree

The leaves shone like a twinkling star

And when it got dark

The sound of an insect

Seemed it was wishing me good night

The light of the moon fell on me

And the way to my house

The chirp of the cricket

Made me sleep with sweet dreams.
