The Tree Brides - Poem by Mark Heathcote

“Of course a tree has rings…
And each a wedding band”
O to be the “bride” of such a tree …
To bask in his emerald love unendingly.

Minus all other pining cordialities
But just a litany of bird song …
O wouldn’t that be truly heavenly
To wear sky as my wedding - sarong!
