Old Tree

withering branches fall from the old tree life has passed for the tree; children playing on its limbs fire was started from its parts to warm up some stormy hearts husband and wife stood under the tree renewing their vows of twenty years before Grown children now stand in front of the tree since it has to come down Parents passed away left this legacy to them. Each child says to the other lets make furniture from the tree for future generations Decision made inside the old tree smile with a sigh.

Betty, Welcome to Poetry soup, I hope you enjoy the community. Here, you will find friendly poets who enjoy supporting one another. I myself, enjoy reading and commenting those who want to be read. The only time I give constructive criticism is when a poet desires it. However, if for some reason the poem is not my field I will guide you to someone who is more qualified than I. Stop by and read one of my poems if you like. My poems are not perfect, but I have a feeling you might like one. I encourage you to check out the contest page and read to receive comments. Tell me a little about your poetic skills if you like. It will be my pleasure to follow and read every poem you post from here on :) We are Lucky To Have you. Your New Poet Friend @-> LINDA <-@
