Everyday my branches weep,

Harder and harder,

As the wind carries my tears,

Farther and farther,

My teardrops flutter like snow from the sky,

Flippity, flop,

And drop onto the walkway’s side,

Plippity, plop,

I am a slave to the Master Wind,

Whoosh, whoosh,

Bending and shivering to its every request,

Shush, shush,

Carrying Master’s weight on my back,

Creak, crack,

Fingers snapping, branches cracking,

Snip, snap,

As my branches weep in terror,

Harder and harder,

As the wind carries my tears,

Farther and farther,
