A Tree Design

by Arna Bontemps

A tree is more than a shadow
blurred against the sky,
more than ink spilled on the fringe
of white clouds floating by.
A tree is more than an April design
or a blighted winter bough
where love and music used to be.
A tree is something in me,
very still and lonely now.

I have always loved that view of a tree. Esp. from my hammock.

Yes! Exactly. I love my hammock and the trees all around us...
