Towering tree

(1333)  Su uccashir vanaspati

Head held so very high, you are the tall tree.
Having shunned everyone, forsaken everybody,
Toward Whom do you peer and pray for mercy?

At your feet has stayed the ground, firm and stern;
Head upraised you've gone away, kissing blue heavens.
Gazing up and chanting songs of the Boundless,
In a life without speed, you've attained dynamism.

From someone else nothing do you want or get;
There is no boasting right in a bird's nest.
Though Earth's hostage, you don't bow to others;
Ever with your head held high, them do you humble.
