Robert Frost
Tree At My Window

Tree at my window, window tree,
My sash is lowered when night comes on;
But let there never be curtain drawn
Between you and me.
Vague dream-head lifted out of the ground,
And thing next most diffuse to cloud,
Not all your light tongues talking aloud
Could be profound.
But tree, I have seen you taken and tossed,
And if you have seen me when I slept,
You have seen me when I was taken and swept
And all but lost.
That day she put our heads together,
Fate had her imagination about her,
Your head so much concerned with outer,
Mine with inner, weather.

Yup, I've discovered a fellow odd-person. You see the tree, but you also see it in different ways at different times. There's an interesting thing about blurring the true subject of a photo: sometimes having everything BUT the subject in sharp focus actually makes the subject stand out more. That's what you did here. Love it.

Thank you. *snickers* I guess I am rather odd. Most of the time a poet sees the subject and writes an ode to it. Lately, I have been on a kick of writing my own odes back to the poets. Just with no words, only pictures.
