WOOD-GRAIN, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: This is the way that the sap-river ran
Last Line: On the brink of the tide never see.
Alternate Author Name(s): Father Tabb
Subject(s): Trees


This is the way that the sap-river ran
From the root to the top of the tree --
Silent and dark,
Under the bark,
Working a wonderful plan
That the leaves never know,
And the branches that grow
On the brink of the tide never see.
