Tree Analysis

Author: poem of Richard Jones Type: poem Views: 7

When the sun goes down

I have my first drink

standing in the yard,

talking to my neighbor

about the alder tree

rising between our houses,

a lowly tree that prospered

from our steady inattention

and shot up quick as a weed

to tower over our rooftops,

where it now brandishes

a rich, luxuriant crown.

Should we cut it down?

Neither of us wants to --

we agree that we like

the flourishing branches,

shade like thick woods.

We don't say it,

studying our tree in silence,

but we know that if the roots

get into the foundations

we've got real trouble.

John goes back inside.

Nothing to be done in summer --

not to those heavy branches.

I balance my empty glass

on top of a fence post.

In the quiet early dark,

those peaceful minutes

before dinner, I bend down

to the flower beds I love

and pull a few weeds --

something I've meant to do

all day.
