If you could speak
If you had words, you'd tell me why

There's no laughter' neath the sky.

How strange to mourn the day's bright light!

Yet who had dreamt the selfish night

Would keep forever when it fled

The happy shouts it put to bed?

You cannot speak, O gentle friend,

To tell me why such joys must end,

You cannot voice your sympathy

And yet your muteness comforts me.

You, who watched him as he played,

Who sheltered him with loving shade,

Who always listened to his words,

And kept him for a nest of birds,

You who missed him such as I,

Who saw a world of grief go by

Could tell me why these things must be

If you could speak, O gentle tree.

Bill

Trees are mute yet inspirational wonders indeed. Some of the great moments of inspiration have occurred in relation to trees. For example, Newton's conception of gravity upon seeing an apple fall from a tree, and Buddha's meditation to enlightenment under a shady tree. And of course a tree inspired this wonderful poem too. Kudo my friend.
