The Tree

They stand together, tall and green

But one looks over them all

From his branches can be seen

The vast and treacherous sprawl.

The creeks slither far below

On ancient weathered stone

The saplings have begun to grow

Towards the great kings throne

To his limbs the droplets cling

Like ornaments of glass

At his roots cicadas sing,

A loud melodic rasp.

Decades old he stands,

Housing crows and sparrows,

Who nestle in his feet and hands

His thick trunk slowly narrows.

He has felt the icy rain

His trunk is charcoal black

Each new day is constant pain

He knows he can’t go back.

A cruel wind sneers and fights

But the mighty tree stays tall

Strong as man and dark as night,

Today it will not fall.

    A firm tree does not fear the storm.
