HIGH UP IN THE OLIVE TREES

High up in the olive trees,

I saw a wondrous sight

Tangled up with olive leaves,

Jasmine seeks the light,

Along with purple flowers

From a dauntless climbing vine,

Above the secret garden,

Ambitiously, they climb.

So here and there high in the trees

Are lavender and white

Flowers growing prettily

They catch the morning light.
