Timely Tree (poem)

Updated on April 11, 2014

The blossoms of a garden’s timely tree

Returning story planted dreams ago

Their scent still thrills the air with use to be

When branches sheltered lover’s kisses’ flow


Sweet flowers’ dance still glorifies the day

As timely tree casts meaning with its shade

How many tender heartbeats did it sway

How many precious memories were made


A distance saw some dark uncertain clouds

Whose rain would gain dominion of the sun

The timely tree stood firmly toward the shrouds

But towards its courage oh what fears would run


And as the world was shattered by the rain

Grim lightning adding terror to the night

Two lovers’ kisses started dawn’s refrain

As blossoms of a timely tree glowed bright
