WORDPLAY LINK: The current post picks up on themes discussed in the earlier post "Sappy Verse". And, as still more verses about trees continue to be formulated after the present post was completed, you will find those as blogpost #169, likely available in June 2019.

Some of these verses about trees overlap with the theme or singable content of the lyrics blogpost "Delights of the Garden".
