letter to a tree from a tree

hello friend
the one with the lovely bend
who stands so tall
as if it were nothing at all
to be a tree
in the city

hello friend
the one whose lovely full arc
shines even in the dark
and in the summer heat provides shade
that doesn’t ever fade
hello friend

I write to you from my rocky hill
this forest all quiet and still

I think of you amongst the noise

I think of you and how you stand with such poise

it’s cold, is the sun warming your leaves?
such a chill on the breeze

I think of you friend,
the one with the lovely bend
who stands so tall
as if it were nothing at all
to be a big beautiful tree
in the heart of the big city
