Most passers‑by do a double‑take
at this December addition at Sunset Lake.
The lake belongs to gulls, ducks, geese, and a lone swan;
but none seem to mind this tree on their pond.
Strollers pause, some make a stop…
to view the lighted tree with a star on top.
It’s hoped that before the season is through,
students stop by to sing a carol or two.
Sadly, as all can plainly see,
it’ll be hard to place gifts under the tree.
But, after a mild and pleasant fall,
it’s a nice way to convey Season’s Greetings to all.
