The tree said, “Stop. Look!”
Acrobat, legs in the air
Springing from the earth

Limbs covered with moss
And edgy sea green lichen
It’s holding a pose

She wants to show off
Her fancy ruffled bloomers
The trick makes me laugh

142.
I nestle in the nurturing nest
I built myself at home
Of song and joy and craft
And artful musical tome

But walking out into the world
I never do regret
To greet the marble slab of sky
And all the world’s troubles forget

I was treated to a winged trill
Not far in yonder tree
And a sweet scented flower gave me a thrill
Though her bloom I could not see

I can’t meet a day and say howdy-doo
When I’m hunkered in my den
So out I’ll go and climb the hill
And keep my mind open
