OH LAUREL BUSH…


OH LAUREL BUSH…

New lyrics by Jonathan Caswell

(Old lyrics and tune: “Oh Christmas Tree”)

Oh Laurel Bush, oh laurel bush…

Your scent is so inviting!

Oh Laurel Bush, oh laurel bush…

Your flowers are enlightening!

   Your lovely boughs and warmer days

    Harken back to more quiet ways…

Oh Laurel Bush, oh laurel bush…

Your scent is so inviting!

Oh Laurel Bush, oh laurel bush…

Your time for us is fleeting,

Oh Laurel Bush, oh laurel bush…

The summer soon we’re greeting!

    Your colors, lavender and white

    And bouquet keep us through the night…

Oh laurel Bush, oh laurel bush,

Your time for us is fleeting!

Oh Laurel Bush, oh laurel bush…

You grow up ever taller,

Oh Laurel Bush, oh laurel bush…

With you there is no squalor!

    You stretch your arms out to the world

     Giving your comfort scent unfurled!

Oh Laurel Bush, oh laurel bush…

You make us ever taller!

  1. first time I read your work I knew something was special in your pen!

  2. Well…thanks. Considering I spent all that time and forgot I was writing about LILAC BUSHES! THEY come in white and lavender-flowered varieties and can grow tall as trees. There is one outside our apartment building in back that nearly reaches the second floor roof. I was so proud of myself for spelling “laurel” correctly each and every time, too!
