Plumb Christmas Tree, Plumb Christmas Tree,
How level are your branches!

Plumb Christmas Tree, Plumb Christmas Tree,
How level are your branches!

Plumb Christmas Tree, Plumb Christmas Tree,
Once witnessing a quarter stone,
Now drying up in my living room;

Plumb Christmas Tree, Plumb Christmas Tree,
How level are your branches!

'Tis not alone in surveyor's search,
Other witnesses like maple and birch;
It marks the spot for us to find,
For us to measure with others in kind;

Hand-written field notes tell us its distance,
Though with cursive writing in this instance,
Of holy stone buried low in ground,
The pin finder without a sound.

That is me every year!  How does the non-surveyor get the tree straight?  Come to think of it, how does one get by without the wedges, lath and all the stuff we find a use for around the house?
