looking for poem from school days goes like this:
THE SILVER BIRCH IS A DAINTY LADY SHE WEARS A SATIN GOWN
I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHO WROTE IT AND WHERE TO GET FULL POEM PLEASE
Child's song in spring
by Edith Nesbit
The silver birch is a dainty lady,
She wears a satin gown;
The elm tree makes the old churchyard shady,
She will not live in town.
The English oak is a sturdy fellow,
He gets his green coat late;
The willow is smart in a suit of yellow,
While brown the beech trees wait.
Such a gay green gown God gives the larches -
As green as He is good!
The hazels hold up their arms for arches,
When Spring rides through the wood.
The chestnut's proud, and the lilac's pretty,
The poplar's gentle and tall,
But the plane tree's kind to the poor dull city -
I love him best of all!
