This bud's for you

An Ode to a Lemon Tree

We cut ye limbs not long ago;
your branches were a dyin'.

So desperate were we to keep our tree
it was trimmin' we were a tryin'.

Through all the winter ye struggled
to shoot out branches green.

And with the breath of first spring rain
your buds are finally seen.

Oh happy Spring!
