Catalpa

My Front Yard Tree

We moved into our house in May of 1998. Our son was seven and our triplets eight months old. When school started, we posed our oldest in front of the catalpa and took his picture.

Poem: Catalpa

Alice
R

When I was five years old
Dad told me, “It’s a catalpa.
See its seed-pod cigars.”

There used to be
a great big tree
a great majesty.
