Trees

 

Trees are everywhere
Some scrawny, others giants
In forests thick or in lonely vigil
Used for everything from shade to firewood

One tree stands out from all others
It was used in man's destiny
For from it was formed a Cross
Of death and ignominy

Yet it is worn as a sign of triumphant
(Some as just decoration or in derision)
But its significance marks history
And men and women and children too
Still die because of it

Still die because of it

Trees (c) 2001 Quentin Clingerman
