The Trees

Are we a Tree?
that grows and grows
four score years or more
save some sudden storm

 Are we a branch?
that bulges and blooms
each year lest its fruit falls

Are we a root?
that reaches deep into Earth
judge not the Tree if it has no fruit
nor branch when the blossom is gone

If the root is strong then we are so
be like the tree, the branch, the root
grow strong, grow strong, grow strong
