Beauty of slender tree/
An intellectual from all the world's expectation free./
Her body released from binding wires of the day/
Her mind lingers for a brief moment, while her body chooses to stay./
Amongst the foliage of green and gold/
stained with hues of red and orange bold/
she sits with unearthly beauty and poise./
Her elegant robe of storm-cloud blue and murky seaweed green/
speaks to relations of waves and power unseen./
Goddess of intellect, beauty, and war/
Thy image turns women to goddesses of lore.

The author's comments:
The poem is about girls who climb trees and escape from society's expectations.
