Oh mighty tree must you stand so tall?
Do you know how long I have yearned to be near you?
To feel the touch of your skin against the weight of my heavy heart

I have sat amongst the clustering of your youth
You have protected me against tyranny, hatefulness and shame. Coveted my innocence
shielding me against the preposterousness of war
