“If you’re fond of road-blocks, this one can’t be beat:”

If you’re fond of road-blocks, this one can’t be beat:
A big tree in the middle of the street.

Richard Wilbur, “If you’re fond of road-blocks, this one can’t be beat” from The Pig in the Spigot. Copyright © 2000 by Richard Wilbur. Reprinted with the permission of Voyager Books.
