The Trees Grow High and Green

The tree grow high and green, and the trees they fall.*
And when I am no more, when I become we and all,
the trees will grow high and greener still,
and having grown they will stand forever,
and having fallen, they will be fallen forever,
and everything and we are all immortal
as we have been, are, and will always have been**
imprinted and remain immortal.

*Traditional British folksong
**He was, He is, and He shall be in beauty/glory. (V’hu haya, v’hu hoveh, v’hu yih’yeh b’tifara.) – Adon Olam
