3. The Loving Conker Tree

The Loving Conker Tree

 

The roots unfold

And run deep across,

The branches, like loving arms, 

Stretch,

Enclosing he who slumps beneath.

 

The sun bears down 

Upon the autumnum glow,

And flick'rs 'cross the tree,

He clips the bark tenderly,

For which he will whittle for his love.

 

He waits upon the strike of twelve,

A magic hour with rumoured power,

Foretold to bring the kiss of life,

To feel the rush 'neath it's wings,

For it's first flight.

 

When the first wings beat,

To the time of his heart,

She dawns upon him.

 

Bless'd by her silky voice,

Bless'd by her breath on his cheek.

 

She lies beside him,

Her hair tumbles 'cross her face,

His hand caresses her cheek,

And the dove of love

Lands upon their hands entwined,

The dove he whittled from the wood,

Of the conker tree which bears their love.
