« Once upon a time, trees were people just like us, only more solid, more cheerful, more loving perhaps, more sensible. That’s all. »

THE FIRST TREE

 

It was the time of my very first tree,

However much I felt it inside me

It surprised me with its so many branches,

It was tree a thousand times over. 

I who am all that is made up of me

I had not realized how leafy I was,

Yet here I stood casting shade

And I had birds above.

I hid my divine sap

In this trunk that rose high to the sky

But I was caught by the roots

As in a trap of nature.

It was the time of my very first tree,

Man came and sat beneath the leaves

So delicate from being so new.

Was it an oak was it an elm

That’s long ago and I do not quite recall

But I do know that Man was pleased with it

And his eyes lit up with joy as he fell asleep

Dreaming of a little wood.

So when he came out of his slumber 

All of a sudden I made a forest

Great trees born centenarian

And three hundred deer roaming about 

With their hinds that were mothers already.

For a very long time they had figured

That they lived there and knew it

The six-point bucks and their troating

Close to fawns yet to be born.

They were, as soon as they sprung out,

Filled with much more hopes than is fair

And burdened with memories

Which in mine took shape.

All of a sudden I made oaks, pines,

And many squirrels for the top of trees,

And the child looking for his way

And the woodcutter showing it,

I did my best to hide the sky

Because of its uneasy distances

But thus I gave it back 

In the birds and the dew. 

 

Jules Supervielle
