Six Views of the Bamboo
(After Wallace Stevens)
The gardner marvels at baby shoots as big as her arm.
The naturalist enjoys the strength of the canes in the wind.
The environmentalist appreciates its sustainability.
The squirrel is thankful for its nest-baring branches.
The bird surveys the world from its sky-high peaks.
The bamboo sways and sighs. The bamboo just is.
