as nature sighs

high up in the apple tree
you offered your hand to me
pulled me up from where i stood
never knew it’d be so good

picking fruit from branches strong
holding hands, we move along
future full of mystery
i hide those things inside of me

one room with a bed and stove
keeping warm and growing old
day by day we build the wall
stone on stone, it never falls

remember the time up in that tree
you were lonely and called to me
“i want to fall in love” you said
full moon glowing overhead

i’ve counted all the moons since then
i lost count at nine or ten
for each moon i plant a seed
soon we will have apple trees

the results we cannot now know
we just have to help them grow
children climb on branches high
leaves dance as nature sighs
