Ode to My Favorite Tree - Ron Bazar
Arbutus Tree,
You have magic about thee,
Oh bluffly heights and craggy spires
Your twisted shapes inspire me!
Winter and summer laden with leaves,
You reach for the sun yet ride storms with ease.
Bark so smooth you glisten in rain,
You shed your bark again and again!
Arbutus Tree,
Overlooking the sea,
Your blossoms exude scent divine,
Your cycles amaze every time!
Your red berries – a deer delicacy,
Your exquisite wood – a mystery,
Arbutus, you are my favorite tree,
You have truly blessed me!
