Some Trees

 

I looked at some trees today

 

Some were very tall

Some were full of leaf and flower

One held a hawk’s nest in its lofty branches

 

And I wondered

 

Could the tall trees boast of their height?

Could the flowering trees boast of their beauty?

Could the one tree boast that the hawks had chosen it above the others?

 

And I thought

 

If the tall trees had been planted in the city

There would have been no room for them to grow

If the flowering trees had been planted in the farmer’s field

They would have fallen to the plow

And if the one tree had been planted in the forest

The hawks would likely have chosen another

 

And I realized

 

The light that the trees receive is a gift

The water that the trees receive is a gift

And the honor of a nest is a gift

And God said

 

What right have you to boast?
