There is Comfort in this Tree

There is comfort in this tree,
For it was here before me.
And will stay
When I am clay.
To comfort those who pass
Along this self-same path

A few, perhaps
Gazing at this tree
May remember me.
I laugh,
For a tree
Has no vanity.

    I love trees. And they live so long. I once wrote a shotr story ( now sadly lost ) about all the thinngs a tree had seen in its life. I might try to write it again soon.

      I’m always delighted to meet a fellow tree lover, Vivienne. There is, somewhere in the UK a tree known as the Doomsday Oak which does, I believe date back to before the Battle of Hastings in 1066. I hope you re-write your story. If you do, I would love to read it. Best wishes. Kevin
