A nod to Shel Silverstein

It is

It is a heart-warming experience
to borrow a book from a man 
who loves his mother
and listen to a sweet six year old 
read about a tree that lives
to give
and gives to live. 

It leaves one feeling 
lucky for the shepherd
who served his time,
found a boat,
and sailed back to build a home
with wood 
from a tree he carved himself. 

We are the tree that 
gives to live,
and lives to give. 

So be it, so be it.
