an essay on the obsequiousness of trees

IMG_20121222_151359

oh! the poor obsequious Timber
thou raw strength doth make me quiver

a winter’s coat, a winter’s hat, our platitudes
willingly offered to winters of northern latitudes
but the Tree, oh! the Tree
its foliage forgo’d
for what? but strata of snow

but for self made serenity
offer’t nil to thine enemy

oh! the poor obsequious Timber
such gallant servitude to winter’s shiver

endurement of winter distress

the Tree, alone in the winter glade
to the cold, such a sacrifice made
what a daring hand is played!
woe! it sheds its leaves
woe! it sheds its seeds
naked! naked! but unafraid.

but, as the flux of time doth elapse
the trees bravery nary lapse
for the tree knows its recompense:
its spirit will soon will manifest
leaves!
seeds!
oh! oh! such glorious redress

    And two for one! I don’t know which one I like more…I think maybe the second:
    “woe! it sheds its leaves
    woe! it sheds its seeds
    naked! naked! but unafraid.”

    Glory! Glory!
