Subject(s): Religion; Trees; Theology


A tree is built of many things—
Of soil stuff, slanting rain and hail;
Of silent snow, and skies of blue
Or lowering, of frost and gale.

Into its sinewed might are forged
No less the robin's song, the grays
Of morning mist, the sunset gold,
And rhythms of the marching days.

And by the Master built into
Cottage or templed shrine, it sings,
For him who hears, in soundless strains
The music of intangible things.
