Look at this young tree
Filled with blossom and glory
Each year grander for futures of grandeur
Will you flourish in weather that harms?
Or will stamina shape root deeper in soil
Stronger yet, forging beauty
Promising to ripen, promising to swell
Stay sprouting, stay reaching, stay assured of your renown
Make hopeful poets praise and honor your story
As you flourish
Hold on young tree, hold on
~Jan Maitland ~
That is beautiful, Jan!
