A New Poem

In the Sequence:


Can we count the branches of the tree
from the oak's catkin?
The needles on the branches
from the pine cone?

Can we tell how well
it will winter? What burden of snow it will
shed? What summer's heat will wilt
and burn--all from a seed?

And from this one, how many others?
Can we know whether from this one
a whole forest springs or the sapling fails?
