"And the Trees Applauded"
Harbor Springs 12/6/10
I came home today to tracks and new snow.
Walking to trace, I came upon the wood.
As I listened 'n looked, above me came
A sound that I instantly understood.
T'was the trees swaying in the wind waving
Banging branches and twigs to say hello.
Making sure I knew that all was secure,
Little did they realize their weaving
And knocking made for a welcome applause.
Little did I realize my smile,
Stopping me for a nice long quiet pause.
