Posts Tagged ‘SINGLE TREE’


The clearing held but one lone tree

Somewhat centered it seemed to be

Its nearest neighbor was yards away

Inside the forest’s safe domestic sway.

You might think the tree lonesome

But actually more people come

And sit under that one out there alone

Than any tree in the wooded-comfort-zone.

So, don’t pine away for that lonely pine

Or any single tree of some other kind.

Their isolation makes them stand out

They’re different, of that there’s no doubt

And though tree-neighbors are not near

For it there’s no need to shed a tear

He has human visitors others would like

Were they not lined behind the forest dike.
