OLD TREE

OLD TREE

Tell of this marvelous acre
The which surrounded by neighborhood
Where stands the giant old tree
No living soul can remember a time of sprouting
The time long before neighborhood

For all anyone knows the old tree has always 
      been there
Center of the mystic plot
And the ground cover renews year by year
In a green emerald density
Here reside the burrowers, climbers, flyers, Chance residents of nature’s renewal
Year after year those hungry come and go
Come and go

Now witness this confrontation –
One fine black cat
Eyes ablaze, quietly watching
And a ground squirrel
Peering down from half way up the old tree 
      Trunk

Chattering about who knows what,
But cock sure the old tree is quite eternal,
      will always aid escape
Three black crows at tree top taunt, screech  
      down
The drama plays out daily,
Has done so for countless ages

Then, in some celestial silence
Should old sky reaching giant speak
It would say,
“I am here”

Dave Austin
