Trees . . . . the household of such tall, kind sisters.

“Trees …
Heaven knows how many
trees I climbed when my body
was still in the climbing way,
how many afternoons, especially
windy ones, I sat
perched on a limb that

rose and fell with every invisible
blow….

every leafy height
a happiness that came without even trying…..

Now I walk under them-
the household of such tall, kind sisters.”

~Mary Oliver
