Poem ~ Eternal life within a tree

 

xSpring_is_coming_by_Eredel1.jpg.pagespeed.ic.pd5h60tlul[1]Underneath the trees of summer

Came a low and distant murmur

Weaving through oak and beech

Chestnut, ash and silver birch

~

Whence it came, there was no clue

But here it was with morning dew

Whispering to green budding shoots

Wafting fragrance, tip to root

~

The image carried out on the ether

Breathing seemed to wander freely

Heartbeats echo and life expands

It was the touch of Heaven’s hand

~

At the veil when darkness fades

Footsteps thread across green glade

Songbirds offer sweet melody

Unaware of man’s parody

~

Sunlight dripping through broad leaves

And plants a question on the breeze

Why do mortal eyes not see

Eternal life within a tree
