ダイヤモンド / 寺山修司
I wrote down the word tree (木)
but it looked so pitiful all alone
so I added another tree (木)
and the trees became a forest (林)
When I look at the word lonely (淋)
I know why the trees are crying (涙)
It’s just because when love begins
loneliness comes in
二本の木が なぜ涙ぐんでいるのか よくわかる
"We say we love flowers, yet we pluck them. We say we love trees, yet we cut them down. And people still wonder why some are afraid when told they are loved."

"All men have the stars, he answered, but they are not the same things for different people. For some, who are travellers, the stars are guides. For others they are no more than little lights in the sky. For others, who are scholars, they are problems. For my businessman they were wealth. But all the stars are silent. You, you alone, will have the stars as no one else has them."
— Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince
