Ash’s birchday

Ash was pining for a birchday boogie,
so he spruced up and met tree friends of his.
But when he arrived, he saw fir-ty tree friends.

“WAWONA!” said Ash, “COOLABAH!
I can’t beleaf yew threw me a surprise party! 
I really hadn’t twigged! I walnut say anymore…
Except thank yew! I did knot realise I was so poplar!”

Everybodhi had such a larch. Beech made 
acorn-y speech before singing, 
“Happy birchday to yew!” (very badly). 

“It’s been treemendous, but it’s time 
for me to gingko,” said Linden.

“No! Wye?” said Ash.

“I have to bough out before I go kapok!”

“I need to lime down,” said Elm, 
“Can you karri me holm?”

Ash was berry, berry sad 
that everybodhi was leafing.

“Did you have fun, you old chestnut?” asked Olive.

“Yes,” smiled Ash, “It was wonderboom!"
