The Signal Tree

At the end of the block on the corner near the chain link fence grows the signal tree.

It is large and old, with two great trunks, one growing up into a mass of branches and leaves, the other horizontal pointing down the street towards where the park is now.

Long ago, the people whose land this was bent an oak sapling to show them and those who would come after the way to green grass and waters where the game still runs before me as I walk down here in the coolness by the river.
