Lady of the Tree


said the lady of the tree
to the bird that flew to she

I will be your home
standing strong within the ground
yet pliable with wind and sound

I will hold your nest
nurture to my best

please sing for me







walking in the woods
mamma duck made a mad dash away
from me and the base of a tree

look at what I found:
