Sea of burgundy and mustard

White birch bark peaking

Standing tall and damp

Along the interstate

Wonder if that old farm house

Is still buried in the woods

They used to light a holiday beacon

For the whole state to see

Some twenty-foot green pine tree

Made by an electrician who had some

Extra two-by-fours

Maybe there's new owners now

The sign disassembled

Piled along the garage

Waiting to be taken to the dump
