Something about a tree
[Return to Topics]

If I could learn the secrets of a tree
The art of living fully in one spot
Of using wisely that which is my lot
To grow above my lesser company
Thou still a part of my community
To fight the menace of an inner rot
Or outer parasite, for one cannot
Of all such enemies be wholly free.

If I could learn to alternate the days
Of strong production with the days of rest
And in my older years provide the best
Of strength, of beauty and of shaded ways
How fortunate indeed my life would be
If I had all the power of a tree.

This sonnet in iambic pentameter was composed by Clark L. Stevens, a professor of forestry at the University of New Hampshire.

Pegleg Pete had to whittle him a wooden leg out of a tree, maybe you can make you a wooden toe, might raise them trees up in your esteem somewhat.
