Do you think trees like the wind,
the way it makes them bend and sway?
Do you think it feels good to their skin,
to stretch and move that way?
Sometimes it pulls off their leaves,
but that's like us losing a hair.
Sometimes it even breaks their limbs,
but they have many to spare.
Yet sometimes it tears them down,
turning root up over branch.
I think such trees are like people,
who just never learned to dance.
