Lovers Trees:  A Legend about two star-crossed


lovers who die tragically and above their graves grow two beautiful trees whose branches intertwine. Then comes a male and female bird, one nesting in each tree, singing together day and night.
All around and above me was birdsong, and I looked for the birds but could only hear the singing. Still these surely are the trees.


As I walked away I did see birds fly to and fro, but never got a photo. Many more than two were there,
so I think our trees are not just for the lovers,
but for their friends as well.
