    A dark, intimating shading
    Of my inner self
    A mere imitation
    Of my intrinsic light
    An in-authentic
    Indistinct
    Intangible tracing
    Void of any life, emotion or strength
    Possessing no depth, only vague length
    A POOR representation of me

    I am the tree.

    I'm so glad you liked the quote, Queen. And I'm surprised you hold ol' Abe in such esteem.
