We are the Trees.  
  Our dark and leafy glade  
Bands the bright earth with softer mysteries.  
Beneath us changed and tamed the seasons run:  
In burning zones, we build against the sun         
  Long centuries of shade.

We are the Trees,  
  Who grow for man’s desire,  
Heat in our faithful hearts
