So Met.



So Met.


Why do young moor trees out-face each attack 

with ironized knuckles and scars pummeled black ?


Bark, tho\' wind-blasted and knarled stays alive

when gale-force determines no branch will survive.


How can fragile shoots beneath soil grow claws 

as wild aim to split limbs becomes greater force ?

Battle of will-power births need for fierce fight 

yet if rooted in Self sapling-strength can revive.


Like the stance of a moorland wind-bent tree

so met be life\'s lashes to challenge humanity.
