Trees In Love


Trees reach up
The leaves reach out
The roots grow deep

Thus is my love for you

Plant your feet in my soil
Taste the salt of my soul
Place your future willingly

Thus your love is for me

Sing the chorus of every leaf
Waving in a tempest tossed
The choir in green goes aloft

Thus our love is forever more

    A beautiful poem. Love defined metaphorically, love and nature intertwined.

How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
