Lemon Tree

A lemon falls swiftly from a tree,
but nobody is there to catch it.
The lemon hit the ground and shattered.
A girl passed by the shattered lemon.
She looked at it, and then ignored it.
But she knew the lemon was for her.
In her eyes, the lemon was ruined
despite only having a small crack.
Oh, long gone are those sweet old days when
she would wait for a lemon to fall!
She would make delicious lemonade
and be thankful for the lemon tree.
Now, she just ignores the tree’s lemons.
They are left to rot, on the cold ground.
