Tree Survey

Plumb Christmas Tree

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?Ken
