  • The Tree

    The tree spoke to me
    I did not understand
    The tree sighed for me
    And gestured with its leaves
    The tree shook at me
    I could not comprehend

    The bird spoke to me
    The message was not clear
    The bird sang to me
    And shook its feathered crest
    The bird flew from me
    I could not know its mind

    The stream spoke to me
    Its words I could not grasp
    The waters danced for me
    And rippled round the stones
    The stream flowed from me
    I could not sense its pain

    My car roared its invitation
    I sang with jubilation
    I drove with exultation
    Its power, my inspiration
    More speed, my motivation
    The city, my destination
    The works of man, abomination.
