to the trees

how can you protect me
when you fear me?

where do the tallest sequoias grow?

That thinning bark on eucalyptus trees saddens me.
palms lean at hurricanes
willows ever weep
oaks reach at air
pines become bothersome with sap
Birnham wood may stay at bay
Sherwood forest is as fictional
as the character I seek.
