From the genesis of a seed,
to the permanence of regal roots,
of all the gifts of nature,
is the dignity of a tree.

The season of the youth of spring,
and the abundant wealth of leaves
that summer brings,
as it's foliage shades nestlings,
and children play beneath
it's outspread protection
in their lighthearted summers.

A treasure of golden leaves
given to the waiting earth
in autumn's sacrifice,
soon after-
wintertide's ancient breath
bares the yielding branches.

Years pass,
as the sentinel
on the suburban street
still stands- the children, now grown,
come visit, and weep,
when they slowly drive by
their tree of memories,
of all the gifts of nature,
is the dignity of the tree.
