there's many trees inhabiting
the ranches and the farms
with branches reaching out
just like a lover's caring arms
 
in forests, they're in aggregate
their neighbors close at hand
all colors and varieties
enriching fertile land
 
their limbs are waving, joyfully
saluting those nearby
their fingers stretch to grab the wind
and wrest it from the sky
 
their leaves are like a lover's hands
that whisper as they touch
the crisper that the weather grows
the deeper they will clutch
 
deep down below, there's many roots
that mesh beneath the soil
resplendent in their unity
as gracefully, they coil
 
their roots are plunging into earth
entwining underground
and finding secret histories
of others they have found
 
their roots are like a lover's heart
which soothes them, though unseen
and keeps the lifeblood pumping
in those trees of ever green
