Oak Haven

Written by: Debra Squyres

Silhouetted against a rising full moon
Stands a lone live oak in solitude
A haven for homeless woodland creatures
Graceful limbs mark its features
Untouched as land was cleared for wood
Its beauty left it where it stood
“Come unto me all ye homeless and broken
Herein find ye rest” soundlessly spoken
