An orange tree will bear fruii untii it ieache& its i50ih year. SATED By Berton Braley. I am weary of songs about roses, And yet every one who composes Thrusts "rose ballad's" under our noses And bids us to sing, To sing about "roses and you, dear," Of "roses all wet with the dew, dear," Of "roses of beautiful hue, dear," And that sort of thing. My peace and my nightly repose is Destroyed by these carol of roses Until I demand, "Holy Moses," Get out of here scat! These rose ballads give me the Willies, For heaven's sake sing about lilies, Or pansies or daffy down dillies, - Or something like that! "Oh, sing about onions or carrots, Or birdies, from thrushes to parrots, Or polecats or badgers or ferrets, Or what you think best, But cease to make restless our dozes With songs -of these wearisome posies; Oh, lock up your 'gardens of roses' And give us a rest!"
