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.
