On the sign:
העצים נתנו לי את פִרְיָים וצילם
את שירת עלוותם
את הסודות,
את הכישוף
תמורות יופים במעגלי הזמן ...

הם למדוני משמעותה של ענווה
המכירה במקומה הנכון,
בדברים כפי שהינם...

העצים נתנו לי בשרם,
לגלף בו את סימני הדרך
של הגעגוע,
החותר באדמה הסמויה
מבקש שמים של אינסוף,
ואני, אין לי מה שאתן להם
לבד ממקדש מעט זה
שבנתה לכבודם אהבתי.

Translation of the text on the sign:
The trees gave me the fruits and their shade
The song of their leaves
The secrets,
The spell
Beauty changes in the circles of time ...

They teach me the meaning of humility
That it knows in her right place,
In things as they are ...

The trees gave me their flesh,
Carve in it the road signs
Of longing,
The paddler in the hidden ground
Seeking heaven of infinity,
And I, I have not what I will give them
Apart from this little temple
Built in their honor I loved.
