The Master’s Key



Oh, tame olive tree, waxed old, now decays

Your master shall prune you, so perish not

New young tender branches breed, but soon rot

Grieving, the master shall send for a new

The fire receives what refused, ne’er grew

A wild branch grafted onto the tame

Good fruit is brought forth, but sours the same

What shall be done so no loss comes to you?

The servant says leave and prosper it shall

The master does see that greatness will come

But sorrow fills his soul, “Tree, survive, please!”

The wait is too long, the tree, it stays foul

Nourished day by day, but will it succumb?

Nay! For the love of the master’s the key.
