DPF / Nemerov

For trees and all their jobs and multiple lives, from The Complete Poems of Howard Nemerov.

from Learning the Trees / by Howard Nemerov (1920-1991)

And think also how funny knowledge is:
You may succeed in learning many trees
And calling off their names as you go by,
But their comprehensive silence stays the same.
