Today
we walked in the woods
in the snow
and the trees were dark
and their branches were bare.
I put my arms around a tree
and listened
and I could hear the tree,
inside,
living,
waiting,
for the time when God
will bring it back to green. Do
you do that for us, too, Lord,

when we grow old and bare?

By Madeleine L’Engle, Anytime Prayers (Harold Shaw Publishers)
