Life Rhymes (Poem of inspiration)

Rhyming lines on the page, strong in their words, as the powerful oak tree...
Rhyming lines on the page, strong in their words, as the powerful oak tree...
In winter the trees remind us that life is fleeting and we must enjoy while we may...
In winter the trees remind us that life is fleeting and we must enjoy while we may...
Renews our hope and inspires us by the Spring of our lives...
Renews our hope and inspires us by the Spring of our lives...
In Summer provider of shade to cool our brow...
In Summer provider of shade to cool our brow...
In Fall drops it canopy to prepare us for the changing of the guard...
In Fall drops it canopy to prepare us for the changing of the guard...
A home for wild creatures, to serve all so well...
A home for wild creatures, to serve all so well...



The rhythms of life, as in poetry, a rhyming progression in time,

As a powerful Oak tree spread, receiving nourishment, sublime.

So well to be nurtured, by rains that come, or by the hand of man,

Every verse, a demonstration of love, for us all to understand.


The mighty Oak, a restoration in kind, the earth from which is born,

Its tiny acorns, so well it plants, a replenishing of its best lines,

A poetic song, its lyrics to present, of a greatest beauty to adorn,

Offers shade in a Summer sun, to share, in Winter, our life, reminds.


Over time, green leaves to cool our brow, the tree of life provides,

Inspires the words of the finest music, then, as each artist decides.

The wafting breeze, sweet aroma of air, as perfume to our senses,

While in rows to stand, over acres of land, its scent it so dispenses.


Our own human lives, as each survives, much to remind us of a tree,

Spreading its powerful arms, its limbs, with love and caring, so thrives.

The lines of the poet, upon the page, is created by a careful design,

With best parenting, forever preserves, a grandest work, it so derives..

I'm surrounded by mighty oaks. They're majestic and offer shelter and a place to play for wildlife.

Great tribute to the Mighty Oak, whonu!
