the music

When Seraphim promises that he can make the old, dead maple tree in their garden sing, Peter and Caroline wonder, what is his secret?

"I tell you it is not dead, trees never die...
I will prove it by making your tree sing.
It will sing even better than the days when it was full of birds and inhabited by wind".
