lyrics

I remember the feel of the bark on each of the trees by the house, red cedar, cherry blossom, japanese maple, dogwood, sugar maple — I remember their sounds, the sounds of the wind rustling in their leaves and swaying their branches in different seasons — I remember leaves on the ground, sometimes dry & gathered in great piles raked together, sometimes wet & sticking to the grass — I remember how they homed cicadas & great wings; sparrows, robins, & jays, squirrels & raccoons; with great loud crows perched at their tops — I remember the enormous old maple that fell & split my childhood home years after I moved away — I remember the trees that fell & the ones that, bending in strong storms, stood afterward — I remember walks through woods, trails blanketed with old leaves, tress so numerous & varied & with names I didn’t know & may never — I remember touching the bark of oaks & redwoods, birch & tupelo — I remember the sounds of the names of trees I’ve never seen, baobab & eucalyptus, teak, tournefortia, & acacia — I remember forests on fire, hillsides all clearcut, fields rendered barren by disease, the moors that once were forests, & I remember saplings that grew through concrete, saplings whose trunks grew solid — trees with demands

there are trees that outdate empires, successions of empires, trees many times older than the language I speak, tree colonies older than the oldest artwork I know, ancient forests, that, ancient forests that will, there are ancient forests
