There is so much to learn from a simple tree!
Send down deep roots to hold one fast.
Lift up your arms towards the sky.
Everything changes, nothing can last.
Put back for lean and wanting times.
Let go of things we do not need.
Relax and know you will survive.
Take care to root out every weed.
This is a lesson I must learn,
From such a wise old tree.
That one can bend without a break,
And ties that bind still make one free.
