Poet’s Showcase

'Tall and Proud of It'

By Lori Wagner

How lucky

to be the top branch

of a forested tree!

You savor the sunlight

while the lower branches


for what's left over.

Like a conductor's baton you direct the wind.

All eyes look up to you.

You are the zenith,

the utmost,

the angel on a Christmas tree.

  • Lori Wagner lives in Lawrence.
