Today’s quick doodle… trees! I must be thinking about the trees I am planning to plant this spring… as soon as the weather permits!

UPDATE: New poem from Tom – lovely! thanks!!

Within a summer evening, dark
beneath a crowded sky,
spreading branches shelter Earth
while silent stars go by.

I take a pause beside the road
to have a moment’s rest
and see a forest in the field,
a copse upon the crest

of a little hill above
still waters of a pond
where a brace of ducklings sleep:
they dream of skies beyond

the ken of mortal men like me,
a lonely passerby
who contemplates the living trees
while silent stars go by.

  1. Within a summer evening, dark
    beneath a crowded sky,
    spreading branches shelter Earth
    while silent stars go by.

    I take a pause beside the road
    to have a moment’s rest
    and see a forest in the field,
    a copse upon the crest

    of a little hill above
    still waters of a pond
    where a brace of ducklings sleep:
    they dream of skies beyond

    the ken of mortal men like me,
    a lonely passerby
    who contemplates the living trees
    while silent stars go by.

    I liked the thought of someone in the far future pausing to look at your trees on a summer’s night.

    Hope your snow melts soon!
