For if life is a tall tender tree,
For then, life is joy, life is free.
The tree is dancing in the air, sunny or showers,

    This is one of my favorites. I like the simplification of life and the emphasis that this comes with giving love. (Report) Reply

    Great poem! I love the metaphor of life being like a tree. I especially love the line we are nature; we are love; we are beauty. (Report) Reply

    This poem is very meaningful. The metaphoric comparison of life to a tree and how nature has no worries but to serve others that may need its covering or protection or its oxygen to breathe yet it stands tall with not much worries..and like nature it gives and express love naturally..no strings attached.

    Very profound comparison of life as viewed by the nature of a tree. The tree has seasons and has both a defined and undefined purpose. Thought provoking! (Report) Reply

And home we brought you shoulder-high.
