Tree treaty

If roots could write a letter
would it be of love or greed?
Would it be committee work or better
of men who stumble on the path to be freed.
If trunks could recite a story
would it be far fetched or nearby,
where wounded men lean in glory
over fallen heroes about to die?

If branches could reach agreements
would it be a shaking of limbs?
Or would it be a bunch of concealments
accompanied by sappy hymns.

If leaves could connect the dots
would love be made in their shadow?
Or would those men's remains that rots
reach high heaven in the dark and hollow.
