A Fallen Tree

I love trees, and often wonder if they do have some sort of memory that can retain all the history that happens beneath its boughs. It's a romantic thought, but I do believe the trees must soak up some of the atmosphere of the time, thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy it.


In Leafy Brook,

A fallen tree

Lay dead and waste upon the ground

The bark is bare and rotten brown

In silence, weeps it's silent sound.


How many men have sought its bough?

To rest the weary, mop their brow,

To fight their cause

Through mud and pain

To taste the sword, see brothers slain.


A quiet sorrow bends its bough,

And grief soaks through the hallowed ground

And men will sleep their peaceful sleep

Beneath the blood-soaked, trampled mound.

~ ~~~~

How many men have shared your pain

And felt your strength

Course through their veins

With broken limbs and many maimed,

They lived to fight, their strength regained.


How brave you stood,

One thousand years,

Soaked with blood,

Awash with tears.


As age will take its toll on man,

The same must come to you, my friend

So weep no more, be calm inside

Then sleep the peaceful sleep with pride.


In leafy brook,

A fallen tree

Lay dead and waste upon the ground.

The bark is bare and rotten brown

In silence weeps its silent sound.


In leafy brook, a fallen tree

Not dead, just resting, quietly.
