outside my window... in my garden...
Know I, this Oak's loving gifts
Towering life, strength and beauty
Rooted, reaching, branching free
Know I, its splendor and its grace
Many moons, many seasons past
The fresh green budding of Spring
The full rapturous bloom of Summer
And this season present
The glorious array of Fall
Leaves donned in shades of crimson
Take to wind's wondrous flight
Bare soon both bough and branch
To hold Winter winds, snow and light.
Rose Marie Raccioppi
for the care of this towering Oak
by the highly competent crew of
Sarvis Tree Service
Pearl River, New York
The Climber and the Crew
Agile and confident be his stride
Adept in his tree climbing pride
With knowing care he mounts this towering Oak tree
Trimming and cutting with a supporting crew he be
And I to enjoy in full safety and pleasure
This towering Oak I lovingly treasure.
