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.
