Eucalyptus Longing

The rushing wonts of action render these happenings unmovable,
These feelings, passionately felt, to dull words ill and strained
She clings, my koala, with chocolate eyes pining for my green
Though each time she lets me go, she leaves me docile and pained 

Once before I claimed her; yes, she did not turn away from me
But instead gazed on how the breeze could sway my branches
I wanted my bark to secrete the sweetest tears,
So she would know how eternally I yearn for her glances

For it is she alone, who can consume and digest my poisons
It is she alone—besides the sun—who gives me reason to stand erect

I never would have envisioned such a romantic bond between eucalyptus and a koala. Such an intriguing metaphor. "So she would know how eternally I yearn for her glances" << I'm mesmerized by the connections you paint ... the eucalyptus tree that longs to be loved, but only one creature can do so. A very beautiful poem for such an unusual concept.

Romeo and Juliette...except this has a much happier ending. Still you have to believe vegetation and mammals have to be forbidden love. This is another fav for me. Thank you for a marvellous read.

A biologist, a mathematician (fractals), no--a poet!!! You make even the trees seem sweet. We have a beautiful planet and such a diversity of life. Not so many people are aware of it in this semi-blind modern society.
