What could I learn, were I a tree
About life, patience and harmony?
What insights would come my way
If I were a tree for just a day?
The world would pass, as I was still;
Never wishing anyone ill.
The storms would come and they would pass
Nourishing me and the grass.
The tempests may rise up in a rage
Playing out on life’s great stage
And though leaves rustle as they blow
I just let them come and let them go.
I’m nourished by the sun’s bright light.
I feel it’s warmth and all is right.
I’m fed, I’m safe, I keep growing.
As seasons pass without slowing.
Each summer gives me time to grow;
Before I sleep through winters snow.
In spring, I grow leaves everywhere;
Before the fall leaves branches bare
My branches reach into the sky.
Providing roost for things that fly.
I am a home for birds and bugs,
Hardly bothered by the slugs.
In soil rich, my roots go deep
Finding treasures the earth does keep.
There’s always more for me find
In places that leave others blind.
Life unfolds, it passes by
No need for me to wonder why.
Yes, I think I’d like to be
As calm and peaceful as a tree.
