Florence of 43 Trees
Florence, The Muse
May 1941
I hear the wind among the trees
playing the celestial symphonies.
I see the branches downward bent,
like keys of some great instrument.
H. W. Longfellow

A musician named me Florence and called me his goddess of inspiration. He said the sound of the breeze through my leaves reminded him of the quiet music of a dream. I provided shade and shelter as he sat under my canopy of leaves, strumming his guitar, writing his music, perfecting his craft.

I was his muse.
