The Mighty Oak

                             I stand alone, a wise old tree
                        Natures' Watcher, forever, watching Me
                         My roots are deep, my wisdom much
                         Surviving the sun, the storms & such

                          As earthly season comes and goes
                           Roots grow deeper… foliage grows
                           Leaves & blooms, sunshine kissed 
                            Heavens’ rains, my bounty exists

                        Natures' Watcher providing every need
                           Sunshine, rainfall, night for seed
                           Create, extend and give forth life
                        Thru myriad of trials and withering strife

                            Roars of thunder, bolts of light
                          Rainfall, sunshine bring forth life
                          To grow, to blossom, if we listen
                             Carry wind, my only mission

                           Winds of time, forever survive 
                            Willowing branches my wings,
                        Leaves, born to fall, become the earth
                  Never at rest…this wise old tree…forever evolving
