Lovers’ Tree (poem)

Come sit with me awhile beneath our tree

See how its fingers stroke across a sky

Of possibilities to what might be

A gateway to a dreamer’s gentle sigh

-

And feel the warmth and fragrance of its boughs

They fan away the harshness of the day

Allowing lovers freely to carouse

These arms that guard a lover’s hideaway

-

Here safe and free from time itself we hold

As outside our bastion strange worlds roam

The hour has come for kisses to unfold

Lest some forgotten lout invade our home

-

The treasured leaves upon our tree won’t fall

Sweet moments made so lovers may recall

Beautiful tree and beautiful poem, Martin. There's something magical about sitting or lying beneath the boughs of a majestic tree.
