Someone in a Tree

It’s the fragment, not the day
It’s the pebble, not the stream
It’s the ripple, not the sea
That is happening
Not the building but the beam
Not the garden but the stone
Only cups of tea
And history
And someone in a tree

Stephen Sondheim

A powerful thought from a master poet and songwriter.
