There is an oak outside my door

That stretches up ten stories more

There is no way that I can see

The sidewalk to the left of me.

This ancient tree is truly old

Devoid of nicks and is not bald

Her branches spread this way and that

She wears them like a giant hat .

And when it rains the ground is dry

Because her leaves are piled so high

Oft do I think, about those trees

That gently sway into the breeze

I’d like to know what I can do

To be that free and live long too !
