The Fig Tree


Have you seen a fig tree that is laden with figs,
- As if full,
Then you looked upon the ground
And it was filled with figs;
From the same season:

Some fallen only a day,
And some within the hour?

Perchance, did you stand by the tree,
To listen as travelers marveled at the bounty
Of the half filled tree?

WHAT flower is this that greets the morn,
Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
With burning star and flaming band
It kindles all the sunset land:
