The Ginkgo Tree : Manhattan
Poem (2013) by Kristine Byrne about the Ginkgo tree and Manhattan
(New York City).
Video on YouTube.
From the poem:
"As nature opened up its dawn,, you came
Born on the windIt took some hundred million years But here you are ..deep secret of the earthOld Ginkgo of the ancientsAlong Manhattan Streets.
The Ginkgo stands. She's seen it all before.The old tree knows that I and all I see Will come and goArchaic Ginkgo ..Jurassic CycadShe is a Bridge of Sighs arched over time."
