Whispers among the balsams….
Whispers among the balsams …
Be aware that if you pry too much
she may take her secrets and leave
Be cautious of how you react
as if a child who’s to listen though never believe
She sways so evenly in soft breezes and sings
tunes you’ve never heard
Though you listen as you know you never have
to silent scream as a cursing word
Mother nature has so very much to say
but we must drown out the background shrill
Sit for a time and ask her softly “what is it
my love ” and be ever still
The firs will bend and the poplars sway
the pine boughs will softly hover
And she may speak or she might cry
she might embrace you as a brother
In the end in the warm and eternal sun you
lay for a time in green grass and ponder
But never forget if you’ve broken her spell
does she trust you now….. she’ll make you wonder

I love all trees, Ed, and your poem about the balsams is lovely.
beautiful well written verse. Well done. Jamie
This is quite beautiful Ed, it evokes so many emotions. I’m a tree person myself, so it really hits home
