Our Cherry Tree on Windermere Street

As soon as they could walk
She invited them to climb
Our cherry trees been sheltering us
A long long time

Somber and invicible
Against the dark night skies
Like stars amid her branches
Like watching restless eyes

In spring it’s so astounding
We just stand and stare
She’s so completely gorgeous
With blossoms in her hair

And she’s totally outrageous
Her wonders never cease
For in the mid of summer
A red-lipped seductive feast

She plays with us in autumn
Throwing her red leaves aground
We pick them up, toss them back
And joyfully run around

In winter she is quiet though
And likes to meditate
We whisper as we tip-toe by
And wait and wait and wait
