A beautiful poem from “A Walk Through Nature” by Marta Moran Bishop


THE TWO WHO WERE ONE

UPON THE HILL, BESIDE THE ROAD
STOOD TWO LITTLE TREES SIDE BY SIDE

OVER THE YEARS THEY GREW AS ONE
THEIR TRUNKS AND BRANCHES INTERTWINED

ONE HUNDRED YEARS AND MORE THEY STOOD
LIMBS LOCKED IN A LOVERS EMBRACE

LOOK CLOSELY IF YOU WANT TO SEE
HOW LONG THESE TWO HAVE GROWN AS ONE

THEY LOST A FRIEND A YEAR AGO
HE STOOD UPON THE HILL NEAR THEM

ONE HUNDRED YEARS AND MORE THEY STOOD
THE TWO WHO WERE ONE AND THEIR FRIEND

AGE IS SHOWING SOME LIMBS DYING
STILL, THEY HOLD EACH OTHER ENTWINED

THEIR LEAVES STILL SHADE US IN THE SPRING
IN FALL THEY TURN RED, ORANGE, AND GOLD

IT’S IN THE WINTER YOU WILL SEE
THE HUNDRED YEARS AND MORE THEY STOOD.
