The Love Tree

Written by: Fide Erken

There was an old tree
at the corner of the street
so big and imposing
that everybody tried to climb it

some people weren't strong enough
to grasp the branches
so they fell
before reaching the peak

some were too heavy
when these tried to
reside in the tree
they broke the branches

there was one person
tall, thin and gentle
he reached the top
after struggling many years

he settled there
his beautiful wife aside
but the scenery was so attractive
that he started to watch
