16.The Tree

Don’t look at the fallen leaves
Don’t think I am dying,
I am only regenerating myself.

As the autumn advances,
I’ll shed all my leaves
And stand still in introspection
Watching days and months go by.

When the spring arrives,
I’ll have a new green cover
Pleasing to every eye
And home to chirpy birds.

Change is what I’ll strive for
As long as I live
Hardly does it matter to me
That I cannot move from the place
Where I am rooted.
