"It is foolish 

to let a young redwood

grow next to your house.

Even in this

one lifetime,

you will have to choose.

The great calm being,

this clutter of soup pots and books - 

Already the first branch-tips brush at  the window

Softly, calmly, immensity taps at your life"

Tree by Jane Hirshfield
