Ever green is the evergreen,
stately, piercing the blue sky.
From a distance I see an outline
of a metropolis on some distant planet.
On a trail in their midst
I am a midget next to a giant,
a flittering moth flashing
through sun rays that pierce the shade.
Surrounded by pine and spruce,
pinion and fir I walk
in peace, the pine tar smell
reminding me of Christmas trees.
I walk in wonder
canopy of branches
awed by the hand of God.
