Serene Shade Tree

Perhaps I knew you once before

Or sat beneath your shade;

A simple tree in lonely fields,

Under which worries fade;

You knew my soul’s desires

‘Fore I chose you as my own

I, to be your caretaker

And you to be my home;

I wake up and the distant sun

No longer casts its light,

And with its flame did disappear

My early morning plight;

So do I stay here through the night,

Your earth under my nails?

Or someday, when your leaves do fall,

Will your love for me fail?
