Lady Birch

(Written for my dear friend Lady Birch)

Douglas Fir's heavy shoulders sag
As Scottie Pine dances madly
under the stormy sky

Sessile Oak stands tall and strong
and hardly moves at all

Poor Lily Magnolia,
reddish purple, she blushes naked
as late winterly winds argue overhead

Yet none is worse than Willow, she weeps
and waves all through the night

But through the storm and in beauty
Lady Birch branches out
and touches all.
