A Tree Knelt In Praise

By Shaykh Hamza Yusuf

I know that I shall never see
A poem that bows quite like our tree
A tree who like us loved to pray
In adoration every day

A tree who humbly knelt in praise
To God and never chose to raise
Itself above the other trees
Instead remained as if on knees

A tree who gave our scholars shade
And never asked that it be paid
A tree whose needles never hurt
But gently fell upon the dirt

A tree whose worth cannot be told
Or ever lent or bought with gold
A tree who showed us all its height
With God by bowing with delight

It taught us all to clearly see
A Garden lies beneath a tree
And then it showed us with a sigh
That trees, like us, must also die

In an age of folly, play and mirth
A tree has died with brow on earth

One bow to the Lord of East and West in humility

another bow thats release arrows of fire and wisdom

who knelt before a sage to receive the light arrow

everything is wrapped up in muzammil shadow

only if the Tree of Ridhwan or Tubba unveils to you..
