General Sherman


Poesy plus Polemics

The General Sherman Tree Giant Sequoia, 2700 Years Old Largest Living Tree on Earth The General Sherman Tree
Giant Sequoia, 2700 Years Old
Largest Living Tree on Earth

it blows holes in my mind

thinking he’s been alive

since King Midas touched gold

since that not-as-yet Roman wolf

suckled twin boys by the Tiber

that remote ancient age of men

saw this grand giant sequoia

Base of The General Sherman Tree Base of The General Sherman Tree

shoot up from the montane

through soils now bedding our

trailheads across High Sierras

incredible majesty graces

impossibly high leafy limbs

massive rocket straight trunk

pointing halfway to paradise

dwarfing all civilized realms
