A lament

Strawberry Tree

Oh! To be a sexless tree!

To not have to lose any leaves.
To not watch them wither
and fall.

To not bear any fruit.
To not worry about the apples or the pears
or fear the early Frost.

To stand in sunshine.
To stand in rain
and bear witness to the passage of time.

Without tears.
Without joy.
Without pain.
