The Fig Tree - Poem by Leslie Alexis
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?
