The Giant Red Wood Tree

Standard

 

One momentary

New-built house

Foundations

And deep mystery of tree

Much older than

The history of men

That walk beneath

In reach of ranging

Branches bearing living

Life in bevy

Full of richness

Blushing flush

With fruity forestry

So sacred

Heavily it bends

To tend below

And yet this all

Will have to fall

Because of all

Of what men do

In that momentary

Breath that wants

A tree less lawn
