Front Yard Gum

Tall gum tree I see, your gangly limbs stretch on up to the sky.
You just exist, no need to think or ponder how and why.
From time to time you shed your bark; on my front lawn it lands.
Your leaves sway 'round and sometimes fall, just as the wind commands.
The hole in your trunk is where rainbow lorikeets live and lay their eggs.
Your sturdy branches are a welcome place for galahs to rest their legs.
One day I will leave this place behind but here you will remain,
Bringing that bit of bush to another suburban family's life again.
