THE TREE

 

The tree wants to grow by the water

to feel newness course along its limbs.

And yet it grows among the corn

And jawing birds,

and watches (a helpless observer)

as they steal the grain and falling cobs.

The birds are its company.

Would the river,

with wet tongue caressing its roots

be the same?
