'You Are The Tree, I Am The Wind'


You are the tree, I am the wind,

You alter my course, yet you also bend;

No longer is either the same after each-

I am the wind, be my tree, I do beseech!

Ethereal, unseen-yet alterations I may make!

Magnificent, beautiful-away, my gust, you take!


Together, we are an ever-changing landscape,

Making wondrous reality out of our dreasmscape!

A tree, without its wind-breathless, becalmed:

A wind, without its tree-purposeless, withdrawn!


The wind sweeps around the tree, the tree dances

More inspiring is this than all other romances!

I, the most powerful wind, you, the most beautificent tree;

Wonder do I what, as one, together, we may be!
