Traveller camp not by me for the night I am but a barren and rootless tree Stranger repose not your bones at my site. For the dream you seek out is not with me The troubles you flee from I have my own The warmth that you crave for I cannot be. Move on for with me you are still alone My shade you could take but I bear no fruits Nor host bee hives to be victuals for none Beyond are grapes and many shaded roots.
