Jane Hirshfield – Tree


 
 
It is foolish
to let a young redwood
grow next to a house.

Even in this
one lifetime,
you will have to choose.

That great calm being,
this clutter of soup pots and books.

Already the first branch-tips brush
at the window.
Softly, calmly, immensity taps at
your life.

Jane Hirshfield
Dec.-Jan. 2001 Earth First!
