[In Mountain View, the city has planted
magnolia trees along many streets. This
was written after a morning walk.]
On Magnolia Street in Mountain View
My nose was tickl’d by morning dew.
I kicked the seed pods as I passed,
Though squirrels found them great repast.
The pods had ruin’d my mow’r twice,
Left on the lawn against advice.
So if you walk in Mountain View
Please stop and do pick up a few.
