Eucalyptus Sentinels

How beautiful are the eucalyptus trees
Standing so tall and erect
Against the blue sky
Of this New Year.

Their olive green leaves contrasting
So keenly with the azure blue of the sky
Straight and true they stand
Like sentinels of things to transpire.

Contrasting between good and evil.
The eucalyptus standing tall and true,
Is the good and solid worker. The blue
In its ever-changing is the deceiver.

Never does the eucalyptus change its style
Growing ever so gradually skywards.
Whereupon it meets the sky.
Itís strength and agility drowning out the sky.
