"THE DREAM TREE"
by Tom Zart


When I was young and on the farm,
My favorite place to be
Was by the pond in the woods,
High in a Sycamore tree.

I climbed her high,
As high as I could,
Built me a tree house
Out of tin and wood.

I searched the barn
And found an old chair,
Then used a long rope
To pull it through the air.

I placed it inside
And sat right down;
I felt like a king
With the moon as my crown.

Everywhere around me
I could see flashing lights.
The fireflies were dancing
To the breath of the nights.

Now that I?m grown with kids of my own,
I stand beneath the same old tree.
What I built has long since gone
Though it's easy for me to see.
