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
