Deep Roots

Two ancient trees towered on the banks of the river.
The gentle breeze caused them to sway
like massive boats rolling with the waves.

At last, one slowly spoke,
"I remember when the saints brought the children of the Earth here and taught all who would listen and hear the lessons of life."

The other tree said nothing for a very long time.

At last, the second tree replied,
"If the saints are gone, we must re-tell their lessons to the wind everyday so that the Earth will never forget."

The two trees smiled, and so it was done.
