Black Walnut

 Black Walnut

These trees have stood for over 100 years


Producing fruit

Emanating a stalwart beauty

Year after year they give

Because year after year they take

They take water in all its scarcity

They take the minerals, the dirt

They take the light, the dark

Then give out food and shelter

Beauty and strength

Wonder and amazement

They grow to great lengths

They do all this from this same, small plot

Year after year after year

Without one single complaint

I think I might just do the same
