A City Tree

It’s on an urban street,

And there’s no one alive to thank

For the unexpected pleasure

Standing by the First State Bank.

It’s a tree with ample bough

Spreading broad across the sky,

With splendid bright green leaves

That give pleasure to the eye.

Every spring it blooms with promise,

Every fall in glory flames;

All summer it gives shelter

From sunshine and from rains.

Out on Main street, through our window,

There is nothing we can see

That gives as much enjoyment

As that tall and bushy tree.

Whoever did the planting,

Though his name we don’t recall,

Was a person of great vision

Who left a legacy of awe.

B. Killebrew
