Two Trees

A short work; more a piece of whimsy; though I often find more can be said in less; Samuel Menashe being the master, to whom we can but aspire.

Main text of your writing.

                   (National tree planting week)


                   Our ages past seventy,

                   we bought two trees,

                   a Silver Birch for you,

                   a Mountain Ash for me.

                   We planted and watered

                   them – not too far apart,

                   that they might grow;

                   If not for us, then maybe

                   for our children’s posterity.

D, this is beautiful in its simplicity. As you say “more with less.”
