An Ode to the Tree by the Highcross Sign in Leicester Station

This was written a year or so ago while I was, unsurprisingly, on a train journey with a connection at Leicester. I hope you enjoy

This is not Leicester station, as unfortunately I did not take a picture of the tree at the time

Green, fading to gold from within, pulsing

glow, grow

tall, uninterrupted by the thousand paths you cross, watch

the people pass, unnoticed,

and alone,

unknown beside false promises

of growth.
