Ode to a Tree


Oh Tree, so big and strong
We live life in your shadow.
With thick, broad limbs so long,
You give shelter down below.

Oh Tree, so old and wise,
You’ve seen the decades spinning.
You’ve touched so many lives
And children’s hearts you’re winning.

Oh Tree, so full of green,
Your days are surely numbered.
Still, Living in a dream,
And never having slumbered.

Oh Tree, so worn and bent
Where did all your children go?
The storms will not relent,
Still, you never will let go.
