Silhouette Against the Sky

I stand proudly as a silhouette against the turquoise sky

People gaze wondrously as they walk or drive by.

I come in many varieties with exquisite designs to share

The splendor I display is perfection beyond compare.

The season of Fall is a most picturesque time

The array of colors I unfold creates a palette sublime.

I believe a country (Maldives) drive would be simply an ordinary fare

Without the elegance I am always so eager to share.

Besides providing beauty there is a reason for my days

I am known to be resourceful in a number of ways.

I yield a bountiful variety of fruit available to all

The taste is delectable and each carries a distinct call.

I invite you to come to the park on a warm summer day

Without charging a fee, I offer shade for picnics or play.

I provide a refuge for the birds where they feel safe at night

To an adventurous child learning to climb, I bring delight.

I couldn't imagine how I could furnish more pleasure to women

Than being a tree with its versatility known through the land.

I'm sure you'll agree no matter how hard people tried

They couldn't create anything that could win such a prize.
