Learning From Trees

It's important to have roots.
Don't pine away over old flames
In today's complex world, it pays to branch out.
Sometimes you have to shed your old bark in order to grow.
Be flexible so you don't break when a harsh wind blows.

If you want to maintain accurate records, keep a log.
To be politically correct, don't wear firs.
Grow where you're planted.
If the party gets boring, just leaf.
It's perfectly okay to be a late bloomer.
Get all spruced up when you have a hot date.

Avoid people who would like to cut you down.
It's more important to be honest than poplar.
If you really believe in something, don't be
afraid to go out on a limb.

You can't hide your true colors as you approach the
autumn of your life.

(This is so true, you don't change when you get older,
you just don't hold back your opinions)


  A Poem Lovely As a Tree

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is pressed
Against the earth's sweet flowing breast;

A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.
---by Joyce Kilmer
