"Straining to win the sky..."

"The tree is more
than first a seed,
then a stem,
then a living trunk,
and then dead timber.
The tree is a slow,
enduring force straining
to win the sky."
(1900 - 1944)

"The tree which moves
some to tears of joy
is in the eyes of others
only a green thing which
stands in their way."
(1757 - 1827)
