Two Trees

album: True Unity (2006), track 4 of 13
author: Chuck Pyle
publisher: Bee 'n' Flower Music BMI

Where the mountains
make the wind
And the yellow plains begin
There by themselves two trees
Are touching limbs
The woman-tree, she is small
The man-tree, he is tall
And she stands before the wind
So he won't fall
Underground their roots entwine
She a spruce and he a pine
They are one by some
Creator's grand design
One day a southern wind blew
There was nothing she could do
He fell down there beside her
Oh, so straight and true
A young man and his new wife
Cut her down there by his side
And built them both into
The walls of their new life
Now they stand against the wind
Protecting all the love within
Yellow windows in the snow
They are both together again
