Get Rid Of The Advertisements

the mulberry tree

I was always enthralled
by the tease
of our mulberry tree

That sat in the middle
of our yard

A part of the landscape,
the old tree stood outside
as to guard...

but during the night
it seemed to come
to dance magic
under the sky...

where hands and feet it grew
even wearing shoes

the tree
came alive
to purposely tease

for me to run out
and play,
in the evening

With a wink and
a wave
from the mulberry

I decided this dream
was to stay...

That old mulberry tree
had me spell bounded,

fastinated by its transfer
I took more then a glance

at this magical tree
teasing me...
