A place for intelligent writers
A place for intelligent readers
 by Frank Shortt
Whose tree is this, itís hard to say
It sure puts on a great display
At first view, I could not believe
Something this beautiful, could be.
Folks spend millions at Christmastime
To trim a tree thatís all sublime
The Creator made this one free,
For all to enjoy, all to see.
Soon this beauty will fade away
But will appear another day
When its sap rises up in Spring
New life and enjoyment to bring!
So we will wait so patiently
Knowing that what will be, will be
Meantime we must go our own way
To come again? Whoís to say?
