whose roots rise on high
and whose branches reach down to earth
is pure spirit
who in truth is called non-death.
All the worlds rest in it
and beyond it no one can go.
by the Katha Upanishad
Trees connect us directly with the spirit realm of the Faeries, Elves, dryads Oak fairy's & many other kinds of tree fairy's and - magical creatures too...
Enter these enchanted woods,
You who dare.
Nothing harms beneath the leaves,
More than waves a swimmer cleaves.
Toss your heart up with the lark,
Foot at peace with mouse and worm,
Fair you fare.
Only at a dread of dark
Quaver, and they quit their form:
Thousand eyeballs under hoods
Have you by the hair.
Enter those enchanted woods
You who dare,
by George Meredith
