Under the Tree


While sitting under an old tree shade

Did your mind wander to the past?

For who had planted the seed years ago

Now, fully grown and providing shade

The hand that nurtured it to grow

Over the years, the solid tree trunk stands

And its branches full of leaves

Home to many birds, who find refuge here

Strong roots firmly hold it to the ground

Weathering many storms through the years

The lovely soul still alive in the tree

A strong bond with the hands that took care

Here I sit in idleness and my mind wander

Asking the tree to narrate me the story

As the leaves respond with soft rustle

Awakened from its slumber

For here, I am an eager listener

Sitting under this old tree shade

Waiting eagerly to listen to it, in patience ©
