A Poem a Day

During the year 2015 I have chosen to take on a challenge to write a poem everyday. I will try to put them all here everyday.


113. April 23rd

Pale green leaves, like little paw prints,

Adorn the stout, strong tree.

The branches on which they grow are

Like fragile clay ornaments.


The bark is smooth like a garment of silk,

The wood is strong like granite.

The tree itself is bold and brave,

It has overcome many winters.


The tree has the beauty and strength,

Of a diamond cut and polished.

It can withstand many things,

Not least the gnawing rodents.


It, though small, has much power

It deserves a little notice.

But as it is a tree it, of course,

Is ignored and mistreated everyday.
