Poetry Friday: Song of the Redwood-Tree by Walt Whitman

July 22nd, 2016 (06:00 am)

Current Mood: optimistic
Current Song: Who We Are by Hope Partlow

Murmuring out of its myriad leaves,
Down from its lofty top, rising two hundred feet high,
Out of its stalwart trunk and limbs - out of its foot-thick bark,
That chant of the seasons and time - chant, not of the past only, but the future.

- selected lines from Song of the Redwood-Tree by Walt Whitman

Yes, if any tree should chant the future, it would be the Redwood! And perhaps the Sequoia the past? Whitman would know. :)
