Another Tree

family-tree

The tree signifies great strength to me, 

growth and connections are clear to see.

Stable roots that are earthed holding tight,

a trunk that is solid by day or by night.

The tree reaches out, to earth and to sky,

animals nesting and birds passing by.

Children swing from the strongest bow,

Returning again to show their young how.

The tree will give us hundreds of years,

of kisses under and plenty of tears.

Those that bare fruit apples and pears,

will feed us for free and take off our cares.
