Patient

Pines by the Sea, 1912 by Bertha Boynton Lum (American, 1879-1954)  Art Institute of Chicago

Patient

Be patient as the pines are patient
perching on the headland, staring over the sea
at the white sails.

The birds fly away,
the boats sail away,
the waves draw away and away and away
leaving the pines behind.

They lift their silent arms
and sigh.
