What The Tree Said

I asked the tree “Aren’t you cold?”
She wrapped a scarf of wind around her neck and answered “Never.”
I asked her “Are you frightened?”
She drew a veil of shadows over her face and said “Sometimes.”
I asked her “Are you sad?”
She wept a shower of rain and whispered “Often.”
I asked her “Are you joyful?”
She caught the sun in her boughs and laughed “Always!”
