Feeling lyrical...

Oh mystery tree,
big evergreen
what do you think
when you look at me?

I hear you singing
all night long;
wonder at your
whispering song.

Upon your branches
birds alight,
they emerge from rain
to dance for their food,

while you, sweet mystery
stand on with pride
extending your fingers
long and green.

Outside my window,
the squirrels nitter
looking in at me
with deep perplexion;

they ask, ‘why do you
hide in there,
with a great loving tree
so cozy out here?’
