He Stands Alone.
He stands alone now etched by time
As though twas meant to be
His frame all bent and twisted
For all who pass to see
It wasn't always as it is
When children came around
To run and laugh and shiek with glee
He revelled in the sound
But age and weather took its toll
And disease had hit him hard
A surgeons cuts had saved his life
For which he didn't charge
And so he stands alone but proud
To survey what could be seen
The only oak for miles around
Upon the village green.

Awwww, I'm feeling bad for this poor oak tree. I often think about the things nature would say to us should it be able to speak. Lovely penning Graham.

Awesome write, Graham! Sometimes it's the quiet majesty that can take your breath away when surveying nature like that. You've a way of taking me right along to the very scenes you describe. A master of the pen, you are!

Hugs and admiration for an amazing talent!
