‘Stand By Me’ Tree

At the heart of Berlin’s Tiergarten Park, an anonymous person has carved the lyrics to one of the greatest love songs of all time: Ben E. King’s “Stand By Me.”

The carving is neat and deliberate. Clearly this was no act of youthful graffiti but rather a meaningful statement of purpose. Whether it was a declaration of love for a person or just for the song itself, the “Stand By Me” Tree has become a touching unsanctioned monument in Tiergarten Park. The bark has long since healed, and Ben E. King’s timeless lyrics will remain as long as the tree stands.
