William - My Special Tree

My Special Tree By Levi

I like my Nana’s tree. It is her feijoa tree.
It is at the back of her garden. I like the feijoa tree because I like climbing it and eating the feijoas off the tree. It is humungous and the branches are thick and hard. I like to climb it and pick fruit off the thick and strong tree. It tastes sour and sweet and juicy and best of all yummy.

My Special Tree By William

Four years ago when we were living in Mt Wellington, I had an enormous tree growing at the back of my house. It was a guava tree and it had heaps of red and green coloured fruit growing on it. My brothers and I built a big tree house on the top of the tree. Everyday I would go outside and climb into my tree house to watch the beautiful sun set with all my other friends, but then we moved. I just sat inside my tree house and cried. The last time I climbed tree I could smell its beautiful green leaves and I could feel the hard rough thick bark under my hands and feet. When we hopped in the car I looked back at all those years I had climbed that beautiful tree. When we were backing out of the driveway my fiends came running and were asking me if they could have my tree. I said yes then I started to weep. We were off. Now every time we go to church I see that tree and it looks just the same.
