The King's Tree

There is a tree,

west of me,

of which belongs to another prince.

That tree I see,

is so pleasing unto my eyes.

Oh, how I walk about,

by and by.

It is like a tower,

bending above it's own kingdom of spruce;

It is like a lord,

leading his own army of oak;

It is as of a woman of beauty,

standing alongside the pine.

Oh, how I want it so!

It's shade is as a shield,

from the beating of the scorching sun.

The fruit that it does yield,

is sweeter than butter loaded atop a bun.

The tree's insides are filled with sap and honey.

The animals abide gracefully around.

Oh, how I would give my money,

to claim as mine!

60 shekel!

60 mikas!

Oh, how I want it so!

I stalk around,

I abound all round.

All the people admire so.

I pet it's bark,

I taste it's fruit.

Oh, how I love it so!

The axemen chop,

all day long,

alas they come to this tree.

I say,"Stop!

Do not come hither,

Do not step nearer,

for this tree itself is as a king."

200 talents, at last it's mine!

It is mine to keep, forever and ever.

It has been here so,

stood firm a thousand years.

For generations to come,

let it stand, forevermore.
