Did you hear my longing for a dress of green
during winter’s sleep, Oh, how long I dreamed!
Missing those coverings of my graceful limbs
and yes, too, the blossoms of fairy dust whims

Fancy meeting you, here, at my new birth revival
finding your muse within my greenings arrival
Warmer winds catching my new sprouting leaves
I’ll dance for your pleasure and hope you are pleased

Awakening roots draw from the earth living water
Watch where you step those that rise are a bother
Of my need for this dress there can be no denial
For oxygen spent from it will grant your survival

That scar that you carved on my truck just last year
has become the tattoo that reminds of your tears
When you feel you must trim my broken limbs
remember to raise thoughtfully my new dress’s hem

Strange, how humans don more clothes in winter and trees get stripped down bare. Makes one shiver at just the thought of it. Don't be surprised if you hear the tree say thank you come Spring for your lovely compassionate poem in its honor. Peace. :)

how lovely that you made it the gown of spring and using the tree and its limbs! Great personification. I do not know the place this one got, but it's tops with me. Congratulations.

I was 13 that a small town. It was part of the festivities for homecoming that year. It was wrapping the May pole... with colorful ribbons... every other one going round the pole in opposite direction ... one time you ducked under the next the other one ducked under. Quite fun as I recall... and colorful too.
