[Shadows of other trees]

Shadows of other trees
cut a moon from the sun’s last rays
to crown the crown of cypress.

How can I have lived here
eight long years and never seen it…?

Or was it rather that the cypress
was not until this year quite so tall ?

I laugh to think I did not see it grow at all.
