J THREE TREES By Charles H. Crandall. The pinetree grew in the wool, Tapering, straight and hign; Stately and proud it stood, Black-green against the sky. Crowded so close it sought the blue, And ever upward it reached and grew. The oak tree stood in the field Beneath it dozed the herds: It gave to the moyer a shield, It gave a home to the birds. Sturdy and broad.it guarded the farms With its brawny trunk and knotted arms. The apple tree grew by the*wall, Ugly and crooked and black , But it knew the gardener's call, And the children rode on its back. It scattered its blossoms upon the air. It covered tne ground with fruitage fair. And the Lord uf the Harvest heard And He said : "I use them all; For the bough that shelters the bitd, For the beams that pillars a hall. And ibev grow tall, or they grow ill, They grow but to wait their master's will. " For a ship of oak was sent Far over the ocean blue, * And the pine was the most that bent As over the waters they flew, And the ruddy fruit of the apple tree Was borne to a starving isle of the sea.
