    I am poetry.
    I grow words like leaves, from branches of trees.
    My trunk is hard and built of the best wood.
    I`m no Maple sapling. But, if I was my syrup would be good.
    My roots are strong and dig very deep.
    For it`s more than water that they seek.
    I search for knowledge and I do it assiduously.
    I refuse to allow it to escape from me.
    Verbs, nouns, adjectives and such.
    I read them, write them and explode them from my gut.
    Voraciously, I gather sustenance from my surroundings.
    I`m no vine, nor weed, or any other groundling.
    I am a big bad Redwood, I`m sure all can see.
    There aren`t too many tree`s left that are as old as me.
    I`ve been here before the first word was formed.
    I witnessed the dinosaurs as they were born.
    I saw Atlantis as it was swallowed up by the sea.
    Now, they are gone and all that`s left is me.
    When, men and women reach Alpha Centauri.
    I will be there to document those who`ve come before me.
    When, the universe ends and the great book is closed.
    I`ll stand right there , clear my eyes and wipe my nose.
    See, I am poetry, I always was and I always will be.
