Close-lipped was I, and no man called me friend.
I lived from here to where the willows end.
Day was day, and I was glad for strength.
I never knew the why for season's length.
Years measured swift upon my cottonwood.
Man and beast knew one roof strong and good.
Step nearer, you who wonder at my worth
And see how friendly I have grown with earth.
