"I found this fabulous tree, and didn't want to leave it be"
Gnarled, Corky stranger today, and now my friend tomorrow,
Treat for my sore eyes – patterns, textures, faces pulled,
Your camouflaged Owls with shine to their staring eye,
And you want to look that way before looking this way,
And what about the crawling toad and teddy bear,
Gosh! don’t I need to stare, stare stare……
