The Fertile Tree (poem)

Updated on January 10, 2016

They found a common way to be

Their promise of tranquility

Where everything was just like me

And there was nothing new to see

-

A lifestyle which would set them free

Just wasn’t in their destiny

As loud and youthful point of view

Got tired of their monotony

-

It’s time to change the tried and true

And free the possibility

A smile soon grew from those who knew

The fruit of this new fertile tree

-

Soon all the world saw lustrous hue

And every dawn knew promised dew

And with success contentment grew

Where did they go those once were we

-

And when they saw that they were through

They bid their youthful days adieux

They found a common lifestyle too

Yet was it really something new

      New experiences must be worth something even if there is nothing new to see. Beautiful poetry that causes reflection.
