Video: poem The Ginkgo Tree : Manhattan

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 wind
It took some hundred million years 
But here you are ..deep secret of the earth
Old Ginkgo of the ancients
Along Manhattan Streets.

The Ginkgo stands. She's seen it all before.
The old tree knows that I and all I see 
Will come and go
Archaic Ginkgo ..Jurassic Cycad
She is a Bridge of Sighs arched over time."
