THE TREE SINGS TO THE RIVER – By Lea Goldberg

The tree sings to the river Irish landscapes Nigel Borrington

The tree sings to the river
Irish landscapes
Nigel Borrington

He who carried my golden autumn,
Swept away my blood with the leaf fall,
He who shall see my spring when it returns
To him with the turning of the year.

My brother, the river, who is forever lost,
New each day and different and one,
My brother the stream between his two shores
Who flows as I do between spring and fall.

For I am the bud and I am the fruit,
I am my future and I am my past,
I am the solitary tree trunk,
And you — you are my time and my song.
