“Look up, look up, at any tree!
There is so much for eyes to see:
Twigs, catkins, blossoms; and the blue
Of sky, most lovely, peeping through
Between the leaves, some large, some small
Some green, some gold, before their fall;
Fruits you can pick, fruits out of reach;
And little birds with twittering speech;
And, if you’re quick enough, maybe
A laughing Fairy in the tree!
