Love Poem for a Tree
(Inspired by Pablo Neruda)
By Ms. Siegel’s Class
In the morning your branches wave in the wind.
My eyes hunt for your beauty–you’re something no one has ever noticed.
I cherish your gorgeous trunk that reaches to the clouds.
I adore your green leaves that sway in the sky.
Nothing will separate us, not a wall of stone or a strong hurricane.
Our love is fiercer than an army at war.
I will never leave behind your rough bark.
I will treasure you more than gold and emeralds and iPads.
In the evening when I walk by, you will smile at me, and I will hug you.
