If all you have is a single tree

Beneath which to sit or stand,

And all beyond is a

Nondescript, ordinary land.

No mountain draws you eye

To its upward soaring crest,

No river rolls at your feet

Churning at a river’s best.

And you don’t even have a hill

On which to contemplate.

Your world seems so “samish”

Nothing your quick mind to bait;

Thank God each day

For His warm rising sun,

For its slipping upward, then

Downward till it’s day is fully run.

And enjoy its change of shadow,

First great then lessening through noon,

Then an opposite shadow grows,

Filling space slowly or soon.

The daily sun gives the plain,

The simple landscape, though flat,

A lustrous changing, almost living.

Friend, enjoy where ever you’re “at.”
