Tree 2 - A Tree Is A Teacher - Poem by Dr. Geeta Radhakrishna Menon
A tree is a teacher!
An adorable teacher!
Attractive, with serene demeanour,
Arresting, with captivating posture,
Composed and collected with a
Cool aura of sweet eloquence,
Commanding with majestic presence,
Commendable silence of dignity!
A tree is a sincere teacher,
Allowing and instructing the world,
To learn and strive,
To make persistent effort,
Without a murmur,
Without a word,
To discover one's own potential,
To discover the inner beauty!
A tree is a spiritual teacher! Learn from them!
And receive their wisdom with grace!
Even if cut by a woodcutter's axe;
Even by the scorching heat of the sun,
Even by those who pelt stones at them!
A tree is an honest guide!
Nothing to hide,
Ever calm and tranquil,
Ever contemplating on the
Eternal cosmic Architect!
A tree is an unerring witness,
A witness who perceives the truth,
A knower of secrets,
A personification of wisdom,
A silent spectator,
A tree cut is a truth erased,
A vital green wiped out,
A secret forever closed!
