The Wandering Tree

The Wandering Tree

A Poem by Emily Feret
"

Not sure where the inspiration from this one came from, honestly, I think from Lord of The Rings? :)

"

The tale has been told,
Thought up by great minds,
Long ago,
Of an old wandering tree.


His massive limbs
Swayed in the wind
And once every year,
He would stand perfectly still.
And shed all of his leaves.


And when he was bare
Others would stop,
And some would stare,
At the stoic,
Proud,
Naked,
Old wandering tree.


He stood there tall and proud.
Rooted himself deep.
Firm. into the ground.
Exposing himself for all to see.


He endured judging eyes,
And words that cut him deep,
But the old, naked, wandering tree
Just closed his tired eyes,
And breathed.


High he kept his head held
Every time his leaves fell
And silent he would be


And then
Every spring
His leaves would return
And wandering again he would be.

You should be standing tall and proud like the wandering tree because the writing is solid like the tree itself.

"And then
Every spring
His leaves would return"

You ended on a beautiful note! Come to think of it, isn't all of nature like the tree? Nature is dynamic, ever-changing and moves in circles, yet it is beautiful in all of its forms. Thanks for sharing, this was a wonderful read! :)
