Redbud tree knows

Redbud tree knows 

Blooming redbud tree knows
Is the redbud tree wise?
She stands on guard always
Morning and afternoon
Day and night, all she sees 

By the roadside she's seen
Both injury and death
Timid drivers are some
Others elderly be
Teenagers at the wheel 

With ears no human knows
She hears secrets untold
Gossip flows--couples walk
Anger and disrespect
Things we don't want to know 

On this tree weather's hard
Snow on these blossoms pink
No complaining we hear
She tells not what she sees
Spring's delight for our eyes

Is the redbud tree wise?
Really doesn't matter
We love her anyway
Beautiful tree we see
Her beauty will prevail
