A Tree in all its Splendour

A Tree in all its Splendour

By David Smith November 4, 2008


A tree in all its splendour; so rich in colour grand

The height and breadth and cluster; so proudly it can stand


Clothed in shades of red and of yellow too

The tree in all its fullness waiting to strip for you


Ah; to bare its branches; the twigs a barren sight

Waiting for the winter; the snow, the stormy night


So the season closes; as darkness fills the day

The dreary days of winter; new games we have to play


Waiting for the spring, to be clothed in leaves of green

How we spend our winter; to blossom is what I mean


Utilize the down time as the tree a skeleton bare

Thoughts and new ideas in spring to really share.

    The tree is on Dorchester St in Niagara Falls at Orchard Park Public School. What a beautiful sight in the autumn in all its splendor.
