Flowers grow from small, feather-like seeds when winter snows are over.
The grass feels sorry for the trees and flowers.
Plants may look dead in the winter, but they'll be back in the spring.
Apple trees sleep throughout the winter.
Papi is going to shoot my piano recital with his video camera.
Toby plans to shoot baskets with his friend Tom after school.
Look at the small shoot of asparagus coming out of the ground.
Emma is going to shoot her bow and arrow at the archery meet.
They hide in a seed the wind has sown.
They are covered with gray moss.
Their branches droop.
They appear dead but they're alive.
The apple tree.
The apple tree, the grass, and the flower.
The winter's blanket of snow.
A tree leaf, a blade of grass, and a flower's eye.
To explain that trees, grass, and flowers can talk
To prove that all plants die when cold weather comes
To convince readers that gray moss grows on trees
To entertain readers with a poem about sleeping plants
Because the tree is so much taller than the grass
Because the grass is covered over with snow
Because it can't see the blades of grass
Because the tree thinks the blades of grass have died
