  • All that's left now is a plowed-over lot
    That's all there is to see next door
    Soon a three story mansion from the front
    From the rear side, though, there will be four!
  • But I still have remnants of what once was
    An offspring Japanese Maple still grows
    In my front yard, a gift from my neighbor
    Looking at it will always remind me of Joe's
  • In the back I had to negotiate saving
    The burning bushes from the fangs of The Mighty Claw
    A close call but they've lived to burn so brightly
    One of the prettiest sights I think I ever saw!
