‘Tree, oh, tree, with what should I bless you?
“Should I bless you that your fruit be sweet? Your fruit is already sweet.
“Should I bless you that your shade be plentiful? Your shade is plentiful. That a spring of water should run beneath you? A spring of water runs beneath you.
“There is one thing with which I can bless you:
‘May it be God’s will that all the trees planted from your seed should be like you…”
Serdar Ozkan is the author of the extraordinary book “The missing rose”
