My Friend, The Seedling

Volunteer Smoke Tree Seedling
The tiniest tree in my yard
Is the biggest beauty
What it lacks in size
It makes up in duty

I watered it with care
All this year
It's my friend
It's heaven sent

It is giving thanks
Putting on a fireworks show
Of color and intent
As it slowly grows

Don't overlook
The beauty around
In your own front yard
There on the ground
