of Poem & Song
“If I Were A
Tree” was written when I was the Executive Director of the
Davie/Cooper City, Florida Chamber of Commerce back in 1979. We
had a canal bank that needed beautifying….so, I wrote a brochure
to promote an “Adopt-A-Tree” program Background of Poem & Song
that would add trees to the canal bank. I asked the Lord to give
me a poem to put in the brochure.
Over the years,
since 1979, I have seen a spiritual significance to the poem and
gradually became aware of why God gave it to me.

what God said about man
“And God said,
Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them
have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the
air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every
creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.”
created man in his own image, in the image of God created he
him; male and female created he them.”
“And God blessed them, and God said unto them, be fruitful, and
multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have
dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air,
and over every living thing that moves upon the earth.”

We are endowed with strength, compassion, love and all the other
gifts of God’s Spirit. We reveal His very character, as does
