Tree and Scarecrow

Written by: Russell Sivey

Tree in barren land can’t be right Done growing, it dies more each night The limbs sway and sure look spooky Kids walk by looking for candy But finding no hope, only fright Near this old tree, barely in sight A scarecrow, scaring with delight Standing, producing fear proudly Tree and scarecrow The head of the scarecrow is light A pumpkin with eyes that shine bright It complements the dying tree It’s just what people surely see When going past these sights tonight Tree and scarecrow
