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
