O Laburnum!


How blessed am I to behold
That resplendent beauty bathing in gold;
She adorns and lights up my street
A spectacular joyous summer’s treat;
Cascade-like her petals tumble down
Lantern-like is her bejewelled crown;
The other trees they must want to hide
Over-shadowed by the gorgeous bride;

O Laburnum!
You put a smile on my face;
You are unmatched in grace;
You arrest my frenzied pace;

O Laburnum!
You compel me to stop and gaze;
I cannot but extol and praise;
To you this humble toast I raise!
