Tree

Vintage Words

.

Imagine a tree,

say a sycamore,

growing in a field

undisturbed by

plant or other trees

for five hundred

years.

.

The sky would

vanish, birds

would be stymied

and not nest there.

.

Humans would

discover it, rename

it, and either declare

it a national treasure

or turn it into a fine-made

and incredulously

overpriced collection

of furniture.
