Tree

O, Tree
Give me
Some of
Your beauty.

I’m not as
Beautiful
As thee.

O, Tree
Give me
Some of
Your
Endurance.

I’m not as
Resilient
As thee.

O, Tree
Give me
Some of
Your
Silence.

There’s
Not much
Calmness
In me.

O, Tree
Give me
Some of your
Divinity.

I’m not as
Godly as thee.

O, Tree
You are a
Treasure trove
Of wealth
With your
Flowers,
Fruits,
Leaves,
And holy
Spirits.

I’m a beggar
Before you.

Won’t you
Give alms
To me?

Comment Aparna Ji, with my educational background and genuine interest in forestry and wildlife, I am tempted to say that your ode to tree is one of the best compositions I have ever seen.

Masterpiece of poetry ! You deserve a gorgeous award for this
poem. Madam ji ! you made me emotional. Tress and jungle are my weak points. you removed the scab from smoldering wound in my soul. If I get rebirth ,I would prefer to be a shady tree.Thank you very much once again.
