  1. if trees could speak…
    I suppose they’d tell us we’re doing it all wrong.

    nice poem.

  2. I love your meditation about this tree. Interestingly enough, the spirit of your meditation reminds me of how James Weldon Johnson wondered at those black composers of songs and spirituals in “O Black and Unknown Bards”. Keep on trying to divine those roots.


  3. The silent observers of history. What stories they could tell if they still talked to humans as the Ents used to do.

  4. The balance of description and history is wonderful, James.

  5. Thank you, everyone, for your comments and kind words.
