the tree friend mine...

she is as old as me
whatever i did she did see...
the matches ten a side...
yellow cards...quarrels...
Hardys and Laurels...
Captain Haddock and the Merlinspyke hall...
and flooded ground and the runaway ball...
the shared tiffin cakes...
and green banana shakes...
and marching soldiers in a parade...

she is old as old as me...
and she did see
whatever touched me...
the springs...
the rains...
and winters...
and jackets...
a library stamped
New Samuel Beckett...
a chocoball satchet...
a crossword puzzle...
playing with hosepipes
water jet from muzzle...
worn down pumphouse
a morning of mickey mouse...
first bicycle fall down the slope
first motor bike crash iron spoked...
first love poem torn in the evening breeze
an ice cream cone and cherry red tease...

she is old as old as me
she has seen whatever touched me...
