Constant: A Tree of Emotion

big tree reservoir overlook natchez trace



The tree sits quietly

being constant in the land

branches representing life

in the environmental band


Each branch is an emotion

active through the years

the trunk is steady

listening with nature’s ears


One branch is fear

when the storms come

rain, snow, and ice

cause damage when done


Another branch is joy

when it is warm and inviting

this is a time of plenty

the journey is exciting


Another branch is sadness

when things begin to die

it takes much energy

using the leaves to cry


In the end

the tree perseveres

living each moment

more joy than tears
