Trees write their thoughts upon the sky's wide page,
Pale sky of springtime, summer's virgin blue,
Or storm-whipped sky, blackbrowed and thick with rage

Slim willows, golden green by rushing stream,
Trace daintily their tremulous, wistful hope
Of earth's awakening from her winter dream.

Maples are bold, and with gay, reckless hand
Their flaming words of springtime rapture fling
Where all who pass may read and understand.

Today I saw, shrunken and scarred by time,
A weathered cedar write on cold, north skies
Words of calm patience, and a faith sublime.
