LEADER RESOURCE 2: Standing Like a Tree

By Betsy Rose. Used with permission.

Standing like a tree (stand straight and tall)

With my roots dug down (stomp each foot into ground with the words "dug" and "down")

My branches wide and open (extend arms overhead and stretched out)

Come down the rain (wiggle fingers as if they are raindrops)

Come down the sun (hold arms overhead and connected as in a big sun)

Come down the fruit to a heart that is open to be (bring hands down slowly and cross over heart)

Standing like a tree (look up and straighten up)

Repeat three times.
