On the Art of being Tree Like
Some fool made a sweeping
generalization about trees once.
He said they were a stationary
Iím here to beg the difference.
They are not.
Here is one who has traveled about
50 miles downstream
Just to visit the seashore
And provide a seat for some kids
eating ice cream
A lady came along and took one of
his branches to make a driftwood artifact
Some art buyer from Europe bought
it for a client in Amsterdam
This tree has already been more
places than most
But heís never said a word. You
would never hear him boast
The moral here is as obvious as it
If you really want to travel far
Never mind what some people have
But examine every possibility
If youíre stuck in a stationary
You can always exercise your wit
You can emulate the tree
And Just pick your self up and do it.
