Man And A Tree
D G Williford

once in a valley was a Man
a lonely Man with only his trees

one day Man found in the woods
a treee unlike any other

it was multi-colored and wispy to the eye
but its branches were very strong and healthy

Man wanted this tree
so he dug up the strange tree and took it home

Man lovingly transplanted the tree
taking care of its every need

as each day passed, the tree became weaker and more feeble
no matter what Man did the tree would not flourish

Man pampered it - talked to it - loved it
but to no avail

tree wanted to be back in the forest
where it belonged

Man knew he must let go
and return the beautiful tree to its home

Man spent the whole night sitting beside
the strange and haunting tree

Man wondered why it could not be happy there
with him

Man would never know
all Man knew was the tree was happy in the woods

and happy was what Man wanted for the tree

back they went to the forest
Man and tree

Man put tree back into the deep dark earth
tree wavered, fluttered and shook in the wind

Man did not look back
but thought he heard a sigh

many years later Man was walking in the woods
and looked up to see a very tall very splendid grand tree
with multi-colored bark and wispy branches

man walked on

Tree waved in the wind
