Someone said it might be kind of deciduous.

. . . well here is my sycamore poem . . .

Miss Sycamore

I am but a tree with many a hand ~ I arrived as a seedling when Custer could stand ~

Try to see me with a wide-angle view, for I am a shelter who covers for you.

Cutting devices are tearing me down ~ a towering blaze in a lumberjack town.

A camper's inferno, a spark of a lighter ~ a match of a stick or a champion fighter.

Many like me ~ their timber was shaken ~ when tender and young, by flame we were taken.

Briefly I stood to relish a view ~ but never could walk a step as I grew.

You'd think I'd have freedom, it's easy to grow,

but after the fall where can I go ?

During the years of an indian summer I danced to the beat of a different drummer.

Unsheltered from rays or plant-eating life

where clamoring crows will cackle and fight.

Sycamore enters a dream without warning

trapped in a place where the public is swarming.

I see a solution and know what to do,

Impending disaster shall never come true.

A tree of distinction may be a resource.

but Sycamore burdens a lumbering horse.

Thunderclouds burst ~ a quenching reward.

They shower a land we cannot afford.

Mysterious Sycamore sees what you do.

In token of fall she leaves it to you.

Surrounded by leaves growing in clover,

not like an outlaw who works the world over

After we find him hiding about,

soon he is shackled and soon he is out.

A tree for an artist to shade from the heat

for climbing a ladder providing a seat.

Her eyes never close as they speak to the wind

harboring wearing ~ on her they depend.

Living a life in every chapter

ever so silent a circle of laughter.

Miss Sycamore frozen in winter so cold,

thinking tomorrow's a page to unfold.

We are like trees so I am told

In many a way we are like they.

We are like Sycamore so I am told

Except for the eons she took to unfold.

hey funny - a story is - I should carry spare dollars or change at certain places -
since the passersby ask me for spare change while I am playing . . . they must be thinking ahead to ask me - since I generally don't run away in the middle of a song.

Lovely song. It does branch out like a tree, wandering in different directions, then returning to the trunk melody.

Oh, I could listen to this for days... The piano is delightfully recorded, nuanced and clean, yet warm and just ever so slightly diffused... The low register just SINGS... a tender, playful, and lush piece... makes me think of the end of the rain, dripping downward through the leaves in a very old forest, the sun peeking thin shafts through to the forest floor... More, please!!!

First I want to thank you for the download. Second I want to thank you for your performance. There is so much that I feel when I listen to this but I'm not going to bore you with my feelings. I can tell you that I will be listening to this many more times when I need to escape into that kind of mood. Fabulous playing.

An atmospheric piece - lovely sound you are getting. The richness of the bass notes is a special delight, although the lighter feeling coming from the highs is a wonderful part of the total effect. Much enjoyed!

Out of your tree ;o)
..and branching out eh? This didn't lumber along- hugely intricate and fabulous playing but I have to say I was felled by the little melody at 03:38-03:47 and it's schweet return at 04:02 and to the end.. I would have liked that as a more featured recurring theme... it was just magic.
