Unique Tree

You’re a firm Tree, and we love Thee!
We’ll keep gazing you with glee.
Solemnly standing
Your branches are green no more
Your whisper in the breeze
Is echoing much lore.
You’re painted in golden gleam
Divinely blessed
By soft rain and sunbeams.
On hot Summer days
Your shadow refreshes and protects
Against the heat of sun rays.
We’re figuring out
Pretty little branches
That shall certainly sprout
And verily grow, and bow
Feeling inner joy
Playing around Thee, unique Tree!
