Tree (Etheree)

How
happy
is the tree
whose roots drink not
from brackish runoff
but draw deeply from flows
of the ancient fountain streams!
Sweet fruit ripens on ev’ry branch
Nourished by the deep-drinkers’ sweet source:
The Gardener’s pride and joy in the leaves.

      And so many thanks for Harps Unhung. It’s phenomenal, and obviously the inspiration for my faltering efforts here!
