* And it came to pass * (poem with photos)

 And It Came to Pass


And it came to pass
          I sat
Among a tabernacle of oaks
     Where I was counseled
On the wisdom
     Of strength

And it came to pass
          I stood
Among a choir of willows
     Where the song counseled
On the wisdom
     Of flexibility

And it came to pass
          I walked
Among the beech and sassafras
     A varied counseling
On the wisdom
     Of diversity

And it came to pass
          I lay down
Atop a mound of moss
     A peaceful counseling
On the wisdom
     Of wasting nothing

And it came to pass
          The earth spoke
The voices of her children
     Resonant from the hills and mountains
On the wisdom
     Of all things lofty and green
