Oak

I stood by an oak,
Depressed.
The oak said nothing–
Paid no particular attention.
I left it, soothed.

I stood by an oak,
Ecstatic.
The oak said nothing–
Paid no particular attention.
I left it, calmed.

I lied down by an oak,
Dying.
The oak said nothing–
Paid no particular attention.
I did not leave it.

Come, stand by us.
