My Family tree

If I could have one tree in the garden It'd be a sculpted tree with white roses The women, Beautiful and elegant in their stature, would be the white roses that blossom earnestly. Like branches frolicking in the twisting wind, the men would solemnly standout And I would be like a humble branch that has yet to bear fruit. My ancestors, still anonymous where they lay would be the unseen roots that firmly surveyed the land. If I could have one tree in the garden It'd have a couple of uninvited guests; Weaving birds and African bees among many. Flocks of wild geese would skim through tree tops as they leave in search of fen lands. If I could have one tree in the garden It'd provide a shed to the homeless man from the blazing sun. If I could have one tree in the garden It'd be majestic for all people to see.
