The Flower And The Tree (poem)

Updated on January 28, 2014

A flower returned to a tree

Since moonlights of being away

Was here where it once use to play

Was here where it now yearned to be

-

The tree had grown mighty and tall

Its branches bore its majesty

The seasons forged its memory

And still its shade graces them all

-

Wasn’t long before tree sensed the air

A flavor it seemed to recall

An echo from long distant fall

When springtime and summer lacked care

-

What is it which brings you back here

Are thoughts which the tree would soon bear

What forgotten past did we share

What once lost will now reappear

-

Was it shade from sun and the rain

Or mask when a strong wind was near

Or did my bough hide away tear

Can a flower make feelings plain

-

So the time past more than a few

Breeze carried tree’s song of refrain

Blossoms of smiles all it would gain

But secret hid only night knew

-

For ever brought on this display

Which flower and tree wandered through

This moment I once shared near you

Was all that the flower could say

Music only

      This is very beautiful. Your placing the flower back on the tree really reminds me that what was lost can be found once again.

      I love this. It speaks of what we've done to our environment and how Mother Nature is screaming for us to repair the damage and restore the beauty for all to share.

      Very lovely dear, Mh! Reminds me of the morning glories when I was a child that were at the base of trees in our yard.

      Up and more and sharing.

      God bless,
