To a blue Spruce, for my Father

Posted: Thursday, December 06, 2007

the

fall

Dad died

I planted you

deep and SOlid,

in GOoD, rich dirt right

in the middle of the front yard.

No memorial plaque GRACEs Your Foot,

but THE seaSONs birds Will CROWN You well.

In the summers to come, YOUR BRANCHES will

REACH out to GIVE shade. Each year you grow strong

AND tall, LIKE DAD; you grant protection from gusting winds, and

every CHRISTmas you WILL shine and sparkle with dazzling lights.

I SMILE

To know

Just how

Deep

My............... roots..................go
