more poems about trees

Neighboring pine
There's this
pine tree
down the road
from us,
and it's the
skinniest pine tree
in the whole world.
Or at least it's
in the running
for that title.
If this tree
had an
Italian mother,
she'd be saying to it,
'Eat, eat.'
But this
pine tree
doesn't have
an Italian mother.

On the contrary,
I'm pretty sure
it's mom
is Norwegian.
