Branches droop beneath burden of snow;

bending, shivering and groaning the tree.

Bare of foliage; now cloaked in white;

longing for sun to lighten load; stand tall

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Gray skies made blue;leaves on branches;

drinking soft rains; dancing upon breezes.

Swaying with nature’s song of life giving

with birds nesting in its strong embrace.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

tree in glory by the lake; watchingripples,

now stands cold; alone;icy water its view.

No hiker rest against trunk;for shade;

nor fishermen’s beneath it for protection

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

from rains;no one to wonder at girth and age.

It has stood in this place like a keeper of time;

when snow melts; warmer climate returns;

will stand again in glory; robed in green.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

knows it must wear white; before can be reborn;

the regal,majestic, timeless; watcher of the lake.

wisdon locked in one hundred circles of core

the sun will return; then rejoice insplendor.
