That Mighty Oak

As I gaze out my window today 
I see that mighty giant oak 
It seems naked though without its leaves 
But shortly it’ll wear its mighty cloak 
Those limbs that swoop downward 
Will bring needed shade come spring 
And it in its masters way 
Will again reign as the yard King 
The birds with all their fluttering 
Will have nests all throughout 
And woodpeckers pecking noisily 
Will feed again no doubt 
The squirrels, oh yes those pesky things 
Will chase each other up and down
And I shall see it all once more 
From my vantage point on the ground 
The mighty oak sways in the breeze 
And calls for all to come 
Birds will sing in harmony 
In this massive green coliseum 
But now it sleeps in peaceful bliss 
Just waiting for that click 
I know it won’t be long my friends 
Go ahead, do the arithmetic

    Thank you very much Connie, I just saw that huge tree outside my window where I write words on my computer and the words just jumped out at me and presto, there it was. Again, thanks for admiring said poem.

    "I willingly confess to so great a partiality for threes as tempts me to respect a man in exact proportion to his respect for them." --James Russell Lowell-- Will, this quote came to mind while reading your reverence for the mighty oak. your poem is a beautiful tribute that has not only my respect, but my admiration. Blessings
