Consider You Are A Tree - Poem by Mark Heathcote

When a tree is grown
you have to decide
its purpose its size
and more besides

Do you want heavy shade
do you want flowers
do you want movement
do you want upward Powers

Or swaying in the breeze
consider you are a tree
what do you wish to be
a thorn or a tulip tree.
