Autumn Oaks

Autumn Oaks

A Poem by Alexander Dillon

This is a poem about the bond between old friends.

Springtime saplings
grow and change,
becoming vastly different things.

Yet, as the seasons range
from springtime's flowers to winter's snow.
The saplings become grand oaks,
and as they grow,
their roots become hoeks.

In the golden autumn,
they give their leaves.
But the beautiful arumn,
is that their bond will never cleave.
