Birch Tree
By Mandy Dickey
Genre: Poetry Level: Elementary 4-6
Year: 2001 Category: Bell Benton Memorial Poetry Award

I stand
Still as a sculpture
Among bright green grass
Next to the bedroom window
Of a little girl who can't come out to play.
My only friends for now
Are the squirrels, the birds, and the butterflies
That come to me each day.
