THE MAGNIFICENT TREE

THE MAGNIFICENT TREE

A Poem by WILDERNESS

The Magnificent Tree

 

In the shade of a Majestic tree

Awed by its might and its span

A hundred lives or more it nurtured

Birds on its branches, squirrels ran

What a magnificent thing of nature

A bond between a tree and man

The rumbling leaves became a voice

“Take a lesson from me”, while you can

Was there something for people to learn?

Perhaps a forest wisdom or life plan

 

You are a traveller in a tavern, where

All are not equal, some big some small

But A rolling stone gathers no moss

Have deep roots if you wish to grow tall

Open your branches to all creatures

Accept all, whatever their wherewithal

All these seasons, every life must see

It’s not always spring, not always fall

Nurture young ones, help them to fly

Cherish their flight and beckon their call

This is a wonderful and inspirational poem. This poem is full of wisdom. I love these wonderful opening lines:
'In the shade of a majestic tree,
awed by its might and its span,
a hundred lives or more it nurtured,
birds on its branches, squirrels ran...'

'Open your branches to all creatures!'

Well done
