Tree Secrets Revealed

By John I. Blair

In Winter, when they’ve indiscreetly
Dropped their leaves,
Trees reveal secrets they have hid
Beneath concealing foliage
Since the previous Spring.

Some show scarred limbs,
Misshapen trunks;
Others kept companions
Invisible to prying eyes
All through the torrid seasons
And only now display their love nests
When progeny have flown.

But most scandalous of all
Are their furry hangers-on
Who mate in public on each sunny day
With no pretense at modesty.
