We'll start with one tree

We'll start with one tree

A Poem by SleeplessVolcano

I built us a little cottage

Far from the maddening crowd

I tried to get a piece of mountain

But they were all taken

I tried to have a little patch of forest

But they were all taken

I tried to get closer to a lake

But those spots were all taken

I hope that you are not taken

I know that you may think

That there is no “us”

But that is okay.

The few trees I have now

Will grow into a forest, one day

Love works like that too

If one is willing

To work
