The Pear Tree

Though the yard is ordinary, just mown,
sidewalk cracked and uneven,
porch in need of painting,
it blossoms regardless, white buds displayed
for a humble audience:
some chickens, a farmer, his kind wife.

I like the way you've listed the ordinary which then makes a perfect setting for the beauty.
