would be a forest                 …………………often thousands
a wood-be forest                  …………………a wood bee

a wood bee for rest             ………………… tents house               and sycamores
a wood bee                       ……………………. sick of tents            . poor tents
a wood bee portends        ……………………more sickness          moor sickness

I am sick of more sycamores     ………… ..ten thousand seedlings needling
up to sun themselves          ………………….into a forestful

wind sewn needling.……………………………………………………..would be a wood
would be a forest of tents……………………house …………………sand
