Letter To My Tree


Off for work I was heading
But not without words for heat-keeping
To my tree to grease its heart
When with it I part.

The wind came and came
But no shaking by my tree
Until one visit, one day
When a fiercer one came.

Oh, why my tree lost control at last?
With the tears I write.

What do I again
The victory of my tree to regain?
Everyday I talk, everyday I mourn
For my love on my tree to be worn.

For my tree I pray to you, O creator
Her inner heart softly touch
To heed my grey hair
So victory hers and mine become.

Oh, why my tree lost control at last?
With the tears I write.

If I should die, think only this of me:

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
