14 October – Golden birch

This silver birch
requests a new valuation,
an upgrade,
a higher price,
a re-estimation.
Yes its trunk is silver
but its leaves are shining gold,
its two-tone
precious metal
is making it feel bold.
This championing fan
thinks it should have its way,
a re-appraisal,
a neo-naming
to commemorate its Autumn blaze.
