As the Sun Rises (9)

Free

I am a free tree.

I can grow tall and swing 

playfully in the breeze.

your bread, wine, and light 

nourish my soul

as I sprout more leaves 

and deepen my roots

to soak up more of you.

neither termites

nor hurricanes 

can defeat me.

for I am in your garden, o king.

you loosened my shackles

and let me grow tall.

I am a free tree

once and for all.
