I planted this tree, she seemed to say!


My youngest granddaughter loved

to show off her tree

It was one of the trees

Hold on tight, Lexie Loo!

that was bought to plant at the new house

She held it while daddy piled

all the soil around it

She showed me proudly

that it was hers to grow in the sun

That image of Lexie will stay

etched in my memory
