If you are lucky you will grow
sheltered by family

You start at the beginning
in the ground

You eat slowly, make
every muscle fibre strong
inch by inch

and form a firm skin
to become a giant
like when

there were no people yet
and you could count life
in ages, in thousands

of new moons, in years
that still are breathing
in the woods
Das geheime Leben der BΓ€ume
(The hidden life of trees, 2015, Peter Wohlleben)
