Frances Newton grove

Please plant a tree for me

If you will plant a tree for me

Then I will live eternally

Sow a seed, give it your best

Mother Nature will do the rest

As years pass by and I grow old

My tree grows beautiful to behold

Tall and strong and ever green

Is how I'd like us to be seen

Even after I am gone

My tree will carry on and on

What better present can there be

Than friends who'll plant a tree for me?
