Stand there tall beautiful orchard
shine to dilate my visions
I have seen you wilt at your worst
And I have seen you ride the tide to flourish
O flourish. Wet my tongue in season
And bank my life's residuals
I share you with the ones that rent a nest
The ones that mourn the day and fly the
I will never know any more invisible hands
There are the ones that steal a gallon of

For I had closely nurtured and nursed your
Feed my spirit for in you I have self
In you I am proud to watch and whine
with the guests,
'beautiful orchard it is'.
