A Tree


Dwell not on misfortunes
obsessions, rancour and
cynicism, memories age,
encoded in bark
I am a Tree.

Wrinkled and wise
rooted to the ground,
budding leaves of tears
I am but a Tree.

Seasons sow tireless seeds
flowing prated themes
not yet known but still
I am a Tree.

Ages past it seems
without end and rainbows
circle unshadowed skies
for history remains intact
I am but a Tree.

Written April 2010.

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
