The Chestnut Tree, Version Three

ChestnutFig04

Version One – Glenn Miller

Underneath the spreading chestnut tree
I loved him and he loved me
There I used to sit up on his knee
‘Neath the spreading chestnut tree

Version Two – George Orwell

Under the spreading chestnut tree
I sold you and you sold me
There lie they and here lie we
Under the spreading chestnut tree

Version Three

Under the spreading chestnut tree
I was wrong and so was she
How eternal our love would be
I’ll meet her and she’ll meet me
Years past that icy Sunday
‘Neath the spreading chestnut tree

Under the spreading chestnut tree
Wondered both about reality
And the colors which we see
Oh why can’t we break yet free
There lies the rusty old key
‘Neath the spreading chestnut tree

Dedicated to NN for her passion in having better endings.

    Love the people picture of the tree itself, the idea of a key holding such promise, and your dedication.
