"Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping. For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts. And stand together yet not too near together:
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow."
"White cypress is an evergreen tree native to Australia; it is often found in dry inland areas, as well as near the coasts. The tree grows to a height of about 85 – 100 feet (26 – 30.5 meters) and has grey-green needlelike leaves with silver-grey cones containing small seeds inside.
The tree is also known as white cypress pine."
