Poem: No Longer a Sapling

(Nonsense from a talking tree. You mean you don’t chat with trees on your free days?)

No Longer a Sapling

doubtful you remember
the times long ago
when mammouths roamed
and ice knew no bounds

but i still recall
those massive things
with tusks thicker than my trunk
with fur thicker than my leaves

time has changed things
i’m no longer a sapling
people hide beneath me
because now i’m the tallest thing

I still prefer [Poem: Tree of Knowledge] as my talking tree.
