A tree is an ever present friend...
a warm and welcome nest...
a place to test your mettle, and
a place to take your rest.
A tree can heal you with a touch
or rock you in strong arms.
It finds the child inside of you
and shares its leafy charms.
Accept the gift. Come, find a tree.
Remember who you are.
Settle your roots in rich, brown earth
and spring up high and far.
