Some Trees

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?
