Had This Tree But One Lonely Branch - Poem by Belart Muroc

Had this tree but one lonely branch
That leaning over just reached out
For the thoughts of those who love….
We surely would have come to love to taste its fruit
So I never get enough of it even from my window.
You see, its leaves will never fall
On Earth’s blind shoulders,
Instead it just keeps growing, growing up
Into the arms of the wind
Had this tree but one lonely branch,
It would pierce straight on through to skies so blue
And tender stars to silence
And disobey the wind.
