THE REDWOOD, by            
First Line: In majesty the mighty redwood stands
Last Line: Ever reaching up to heaven and to god.
Subject(s): Sequoia Trees; Redwoods

In majesty the mighty redwood stands,
Regarding not the tread of marching time,
The secrets of the centuries in her heart,
And growing through the years to height sublime.

While men and ants their futile battles wage
Who come and go -- atavic to the clod --
The redwood, sphinx-like, stands age upon age,
Ever reaching up to Heaven and to God.
