Because the world needs another opinion

An ode to the Great Thermometer Tree

Posted by Jeff Id on October 18, 2008

On a the edge of a cliff, at the end of the rainbow, lie the hopes of dendroclimatology

A stout trunked ten thousand year old oddity

Impervious to wind, rain, sun and fog

With a heart of wood and the full bark of a log

No insect can harm it

No woodcutter can farm it

With secrets hidden for only the enlightened few to see.

What will you reveal, what will we see, when we finally find
The Great Thermometer Tree.
