The Tallest Tree on the Tallest Hill

Thu, 06/12/2014 - 17:40 -- ryannk

I want to reach up and touch the tip

Of the tallest tree on the tallest hill

And maybe then I'll get a look

At all the world and have my fill

Of forests and mountains

Of lakes and streams

Of deserts and valleys

Of land's ripped seams

My eyes will drink the ocean

And I'll inhale the sweet air

If only I could reach that height

I know what I'd find there.
