As you can plainly see

Of this pretty palm tree

I did from Al & Leah it receive

As well from the island of Tybee…


So little do I ever a palm tree see

Only when I am watching the TV

I find them to be oh so quite pretty

Taken for granted are they

By people who live under them by the sea…


But this particular tree

Was given as a gift to me

Ownership is not mine, really

So for you to view it, I won’t charge a fee…

I would have liked to see it too, but I read your words and imagined.

Alas, I cannot plainly see it, because, Alas, many of us cannot upload pictures on A.D., yet once again.

Not able to view it either, but I know they are so neat and I loved them when I was in Bermuda. Bending in the wind during a storm they are a sight to see. Soo deep green and all. People bought hats made of them that were deep green, but would eventually turn light. Have palm branches at Eastertime and they are quite a sight. Thanks for the poem about them.

I need to get more powerful eyeglasses because your palm tre is so tyni tyni that I can't see it or it is because one of your pink elephants are in front of it? you smoking a Mexican burrito?

You will have to repost sir...I am glad you saved it for it was taken in our lighter days when on the beaches of Tybee hand in hand we would stroll....In fact I promised leah if she would just get better for me that I would once again take her to that spot under that tree...she said but we cant pay what they want in price and I told her that if she would only get well that I would somehow...someway come up with enough that we can pay...It will has to....thanks so much for sharing this tree though with the eye it cant be sir are a true gentlmen.

Loved it, couldn't see it...but I could vision it in my mind, sipping a cool drink, tanning, and relaxing beneath the pine tree. I had some trouble posting a poem a while ago...don't know what's going difficulty I suppose. Enjoyed the write!
