Be careful what you wish for

Close your eyes and make a wish,
Dig a simple hole,
Bury your wish under the sweet-gum tree.
Not too shallow but not too deep.
No, just right, or it wont come true.
Shallow wishes are so unimportant.
Those that are too deep, hard to understand.
The wish givers are very particular,
Especially in the sweet-gum trees.
The pointed leaves can prick a heart,
Be careful what you wish for.
The sweet-gum gives five chances, all told.
Hold the fifth in your hand,
Against your heart,
Then hope the first four don't come true.
The Sweet-Gum Wish Givers can be tricky,
But they do want the best for you.
