I wish, I wish that I could be

The fruit upon an olive tree

So good to eat and full of health

Both for the heart and greater wealth.

This tree can live a thousand years

Producing fruit and soothing fears

The Greeks and Romans knew its worth

Their fables told about its birth.

Seems God gave man the olive tree

In truly ancient history

Add this to all its virtues found

The olive’s wealth must all astound !
