I was angry with my friend:
I told my wrath, my wrath did end.
I was angry with my foe:
Tree at my window, window tree,
My sash is lowered when night comes on;
But let there never be curtain drawn
Between you and me.
A flower was offered to me,
Such a flower as May never bore;
But I said 'I've a pretty rose tree,'
A drop fell on the apple tree
Another on the roof;
A half a dozen kissed the eaves,
And made the gables laugh
There was an Old Man in a tree,
Who was horribly bored by a bee.
When they said "Does it buzz?"
He replied "Yes, it does!
Under the greenwood tree
Who loves to lie with me,
And turn his merry note
Unto the sweet bird's throat,
A single fir-tree, lonely,
on a northern mountain height,
sleeps in a white blanket,
draped in snow and ice.
A Christmas tree! A Christmas tree!
With dark green needled memories
Of childhood dreams and mysteries
Wrapped present-like in front of me.
White dawn. Stillness.When the rippling began
I took it for sea-wind, coming to our valley with rumors
of salt, of treeless horizons. But the white fog
didn't stir; the leaves of my brothers remained outstretched,
Ugly is an ugly word…whether in prose or in a rhyme…and I apologize for not only using it thrice already…but in this poem…you'll see it three more times.
On a walk the other day a man and woman a little distance ahead of me…looked up and said simultaneously…"That…is one ugly tree".
Yesterday before the sun awoke as odd as this may be
I paused while I was walking to have a conversation with a tree.
Now you might think it crazy conversing with a tree
Each year Deborah and I share one Christmas tradition-we do this religiously.
Together the day after Thanksgiving we buy our Christmas Tree.
As we head out to purchase our tree we are filled with anticipation
Where life exists
You often find a carpet
Of grass or moss or whatever.
And in sacred groves and forests
Like many families who believe in Christmas
either religious or spiritually
Deborah and I set out each year
in search of our perfect tree.
