This is from CHILD'S SONG IN SPRING by E Nesbit
The silver birch is a dainty lady,
She wears a satin gown;
The elm tree makes the old church-yard shady
She will not live in town.

The English oak is a sturdy fellow,
He gets his green coat late;
The willow is smart in a suit of yellow,
While brown the beech trees wait.

Such a gay green gown God gives the larches
As green as He is good!
The hazels hold up their arms for arches
When Spring rides through the wood.

The chestnut's proud, and the lilac's pretty
The poplar's gentle and tall,
But the plane tree's kind to the poor dull city
I love him best of al.
Tina Rath
