Arborescence

by Cadence Beret


Your roots reach far and wide
Below the underground
Holding the soil together
For us to bloom upon

Your canopy’s expanse
Provides comfort and shelter
From excessive temperatures
Throughout every season

You are solid tall and strong
A natural protector
Rugged and elegant
Sturdy and handsome

You grow and keep on reaching
For the sky above
While protecting us constantly
To bloom in all our beauty
