“The Lemon Tree” by Vicki Batkin

I opened my front door
And saw a lemon tree
In all it’s glory
It breathes life
I fell in love

I will love this lemon tree
After the valiant blossoming
Is over
I will love this lemon tree
After the leaves have fallen
I will love this lemon tree
When it becomes frail

The moon is coming
In a little while
I will fall asleep
And
Wake up to my new lemon tree

Maybe
I’ll pick the first lemon
Maybe I won’t
Maybe
I’ll just sit
By the lemon tree
And talk
About the small things
That happened
In my day
