Trees and time

tree 4287

It seems like only yesterday
I wandered the neighbourhood
Snapping the trees
I can see what they’ve done
They’ve turned themselves green
What have I done, though?
I haven’t turned green
I’ve not changed the skyline
But have I been me
Been true to myself
The way they have been?
Produce leaves, then lose leaves
Over and over
And grow a bit
Replenish the air
A tree knows its purpose
And gets on with life
Uncomplaining
Joyous sight.
Perhaps we can learn
From the trees.
