A rooted giant within our land

Observing closely, leaves in hand

Let your windswept sonnet flow

Dancing arms swooping low

Immortal strength for centuries

Outlived generations a timeless breeze

Shielding from the sun so hot

Shedding skin, autumnal rot

Childhood playground, unexplored world

Dancing shadows, branch uncurled

Yet strength lies in thy roots below

The myriad of directions, endless flow

Now they say, “Chop you down!”

Make way for a brand new town

Fear not fauna friend, for they shall see

You are the tree of destiny
