“A Tree and Her Roots”: A Poem

“Downeast Maine Maple Tree” ©2017 Loretta McClellan; all rights reserved

A tree and her roots are giddy with glee, as they join the neighborhood party, rollicking underground, netted together in phantasmic accord. “Accept the imaginary, ” the consensus says. “It is but our duty to send this message: Be at once masterful of the witted place; treasure up her resource; ’tis not a game, but very life itself.” And the people listened. And they were at-one with the whole earth. —Loretta Boyer McClellan—
