Black Walnut

 Black Walnut

These trees have stood for over 100 years
Producing fruit
Emanating a stalwart beauty
Year after year they give
Because year after year they take
They take water in all its scarcity
They take the minerals, the dirt
They take the light, the dark
Then give out food and shelter
Beauty and strength
Wonder and amazement
They grow to great lengths
They do all this from this same, small plot
Year after year after year
Without one single complaint

I think I might just do the same
