NEW BIRCH BEGINNINGS
Only God can make a tree,
Been years since painting one for me…
A class for the elderly!
My worry was shaking hands,
Picture painting has certain demands…
Lucky for me
A birch tree,
And its wiggly trunk still stands!
The instructor put a cardinal in mine,
On a snow-cover branch so fine…
And “fly specks” too
Of snow that flew,
We pictured it at wintertime.
