When I Get Big

I think maybe
I'll plant trees
When I get big.

I think maybe
I'll have a garden
And it will be full of flowers
and it will be full of vegetables too.

Maybe I'll even live in the woods
and have a house made out of wood.

I'll be as happy as a bird.


And maybe
I'll even explore.

When I get big.
