Every breeze bends the tree
taunt, releases metric masses.
I listen; I sway harmonic, melody,
the song holds me rapt.
Tree music deep resonate
bass and tenor riffs up the trunk
through tributary branches.
Sway in the wind like a magnificent
string, strong sinew voices.
Sylvan chorus sung in this forest
my ear to its heart in
some deepness rings grow
recording notes for midnight lullaby.
