The Redwoods

“Thank God, they cannot cut down the clouds.”
~ Henry David Thoreau

Grandfather Time himself stood before me
Bearded evergreen and welcoming
The priest in this cathedral of history
The canopy a choir loft
The members of this congregation
A fraternal order of longevity
These sentinels of ancient creeds
Generals against gravity
