The Tree

January 20, 2012 5 comments

Resolute and firm you stood your ground
As summer, winter and rain
Crossed your  path
And  autumn stripped you bare

Stolid and majestic
Your proud branches
Spread high into the sky
Seeking to embrace the clouds

As daylight breaks
You welcome the sun
With dew drops strewn like pearls
On  fresh green leaves

At noon the sun high above
Brings weary travellers to your feet
You shower a blanket of shade above
Like a mother hugs a child in her bosom

At nightfall
Moonlight shines through you
Like a bride’s silhouette
Adorned in sparkling jewels
