The fir tree

The fir tree II

Some people sense danger 
And pray for peace

While others take advantage of 
another type

And leave us in their dust
To clean up their mess

I still feel hopeful that we will 
mend our illness


--- 
The Fir Tree
I didn't see the crack that 
brought you to your knees
And a shadow of a man leapt 
out
It had withstood so much,

{noteswithstood a huge storm 
that 
took the roof of of the house in 
the 1950s. I thought I saw a 
shadow leap out of the tree in 
the middle of the night}

 Written in 2002.
