The Respite of an Oak Tree

image

Like a memory, time fades
And life’s true meaning evades
Childhood dreams
Evolve to adult schemes
As innocence and purity
Become lost to the world’s obscurity
The gentleness of a budding flower
Abandoned for earthly power
True love’s devotion
Mistaken for constant motion
Yet poised in stillness is the oak tree
Respite given in the shade of its canopy
Strength is found in root’s depth
Enduring to bestow majestic breadth.
