I’d Be Poplar

As a child…

I remember someone asking me

Of I knew what I wanted to grow up to be

And I couldn’t think of anything you see

Until I thought about being a tree

A place for all those homey nesters

And a place for weary traveling resters

A haven for curious wisdom questers

Giving and receiving love, so free

Then…

From deep inside, I smiled with glee

I must have known all along, I was meant to be a tree
