Poet Malcolm Guite recites his poem from a borrowed poem in the forest of A Rocha Brooksdale, leaning on a tree that recalled the photo of Tolkien which inspired this poem.
Patterns (Tree and Leaf) appears in Malcolm’s book The Singing Bowl. The poem, and more information on Malcolm and his work, can be found here: https://malcolmguite.wordpress.com/2010/01/20/patterns-tree-and-leaf-a-poem-about-tolkien/
