Subject(s): Pear Trees; Pears


A pear tree stood by Aunt Sue's gate
That always seemed endowed with power
To make me feel as if a shower
Of friendly greetings it poured out,
"To one and all, a leafy welcome."

And surely others felt the same
For all felt welcome e'en before
They touched the threshold of the door
As if this tree did nod and say,
"To one and all, a leafy welcome."

It bore some pears—I must allow—
Then sweet to sense of smell and taste,
But never will I count it waste,
The friendly nods, and words it spake,
"To one and all, a leafy welcome."
