A Tree And A Man, Of Unreturned Love!


A tree might love a human
As might a priest secretly a nun
Yet a tree would and cannot speak
Thus to his own feelings a priest would stick

Though the human cannot know
How passionate the tree does feel;
The blushes, the heartbeats, the love and more
The love in the tree grows still

The human may gaily walk about
Absent minded and unaware no doubt
That the tree dies inside with a love
Which if known to the human, he would clearly kill to have

The tree might love the man in its sight
To adore and look upon him day and night
While the gaily man might overlook the shade
Which the tree had with a delighted heart provided

But when finally the red and hot sun
Comes and tans and burns away the gaily man
The hesitant tree is left alone to cry
Till all its tear banks run dry

Poem of the Day

poet William Butler Yeats

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
