BROKEN OAK

                       Intro: 
To be a writer such as he, there are none
  His work outlasts the best, I’m sure…
        …~William Shakespeare, Hamlet, 1601-
“to hold, as t’ were, the mirror up to nature…” 


                                                           BROKEN OAK
                                         ~*Rispetto/ Miranda Lambert ©*~
                                                      Contest: “The Tree”
                                                     Written: 04/20/2011

                             Nestled on scaly plates, known as the White Oak
                           Pennetly lobed leaves, twiddled between my fingers
                             While the morning dew, the summer sun did soak
                                      As the aura of this native wood lingers
                                  In the “Y” shaped branches, only I could fit
                                 And hour or two I stay, as luck would have it
                          Ghastly winds blow my hair, my branch starts to sway
                                 We both come tumbling down, dwindling away
