Whose leaves first unfurled in the dawn,

He was easily seen,

With his bright leaves of green,

Right up ‘til the day he was gone.

4. Now think of an interesting story. What could happen to a girl who has a crush on a boy?

  • Here is what might happen in the third and fourth lines:

  • “They would play everyday”

  • “And one day he would say,”

  • (Notice that “everyday” and “say” the last words in the third and fourth lines, both rhyme.)
