Stiff cat-tails mirrored in a pool,
Black soldiers in a row,
And who would dream the heart of them
Is soft as fallen snow?
Outlined against the sunset sky
Is rigid maple tree,
How should we know that summer's sun
Will set its sweetness free?
Dark etched upon my own landscape
My brother's life I see;
But more than just his silhouette
Is never known to me.
