Plants standing in a smart row
Trimmed to the last leaf
Protected against all harm
Look beautiful to the eye.
Much more beautiful are the bushes
That grow freely in the wild
Sometimes spreading to the path
Formed by human exploration,
Challenging passers-by to cross over
Or find an alternative way.
The bushes look bold and strong
Even as they are chopped off
Or are consumed by the wild fire
Which sometimes spreads through the forest.
