The tree has known, as well as stone

the strength it takes to bend

For trees are rooted deeply

Precious foliage to nurture and tend.

A chilling breeze through idle leaves

Just blew the tree away

While bestowing warmth on a shaded face

A back draft thaw was taking place.

While trees are trees and stone is stone

Dependent moss on both has grown

But mingling of trees with priceless gems

Gives birth to a treasure, known as friends.
