Oh, broadly spreading buckeye tree,
you are my friend!
You lay a cozy place for me,
where I can lean or climb or sit,
and modulate the bright sunshine,
and slowly become one with you,
as I linger here a bit,
and let my mind
relax and roam,
as thoughts stream through
upon my life and on the world,
until I’ve deeply settled in,
and made some better sense of it.
