Song of Trees

by Ethel Mortenson Davis

inspired by Kahlil Gibran

I am the soul of the earth.
I reach beyond the grasses ears
and speak softly into the clouds
binding the earth to sky.
I am, then, the earth’s message to the sky.

I am the wind’s love,
and he is my lover.
He comes to me in many ways,
exciting my body and heart.
I answer him with my movements.
He makes me strong,
and in return I am his song.
Through me he is only heard.

I thirst for the ideas of flowers
and voice their beauty to the stars.
In return they water my sides.
I am the soul of the earth.
