The Tree of Life

       
      Beloved, gaze in thine own heart,
      The holy tree is growing there;
      From joy the holy branches start,
      And all the trembling flowers they bear.
      The changing colours of its fruit
      Have dowered the stars with merry light;
      The surety of its hidden root
      Has planted quiet in the night......”
From The Two Trees by William Butler Yeats

NB . The picture is of the well-known Dryad tree in Lesnes Abbey Woods, South-east London, and a favourite of many DRAGON members.
