A SHIMMERING LUSTER

In spring sunlight won't penetrate the dense forest, while the redwoods grieve... Their flat, sharp leaves are dull, a shimmering luster gives them full life again... The oaks suffocate, their new branches can't spread out: their wish suppressed... Moss-covered hemlocks thrive, clinging to a vain hope: no birds' song they hear... Forests confine lakes, embellishing their lush landscapes: shading eagles' nests... The cherry birches have a shimmering luster, they droop before dusk...
