The One Who Beckons

From the not quite Kelly green of the
Hemlocks, the yellow-green of the Arbor-
Vitae, the dark, forest green of the Norway
Spruce and the startling bright green
Of the Red Pine, he is most taken with
The muted, subtle, seductive almost
Frosty green of the White Pine. It is as
If, among all the evergreens in the forest,
She is the one who is most at home in the
Sandy soil lapping the water of the Big Lake
— the one who beckons.
