Inspired by the following poem:

Anticipation
by Gertrude Olga Down

Between the passion and the promise
of a stirring spring,
in the cool of an afternoon
with sharp winds waking,
an indifferent road glides past
the apple orchard –
where squat bodies lie wholly exposed,
trim rows upon rows,
pristine palette of perfection;
arms stiff from pruning
welcome the sun's beneficence.

But, there, in the midst
of the imposed conformity,
one lone untamed tree
feverish with buds – plump, prescient,
heavy with waiting.
