  At the end of winter, when the warm blankets are put away, and the kids come out to play, a small seed is found.

A little girl cuddles it in her arms, pretending it is a child, promising safe and sound.

As spring emerges, so does the seed, yawning and ready to show.

She stretches and examines the ground before her, reasuring it's very safe to grow.

She wishes to live in a giant valley, loving the trees and the grass.

But she is stuck with this tulip, all shining and hatty, hoping this life won't be trash.
Yes, i know its pretty cheesy and i will find time to fix it! PLEASE COMMENT!!

It's sounds like it is more for the parents than the children.

It's sweet! ( But if it's for kids, you'll have to change "trash" to something a little more child-friendly.)
