    A Poem About Our Memorial Tree: John Haskell

    There's a tree in our town
    We light every year
    To remember family
    And friends held dear

    People come for cookies
    And cider so sweet
    All ages and sizes
    Stand mute in the street

    A solemn voice
    Reads names that we know
    And names that we don't
    Our candles aglow

    Christmas is happy
    A time most blest
    Made happier still
    With our memories at rest

    Now we can face
    The tourist attack
    That means it is Christmas
    The end of slack

    There is snow on the mountain
    And smiles are secure
    We have paid attention
    To those we hold dear
