Growing and reaching to the sky
The tree stands, majestic and tall
It's round trunk is a fixture
Immovable and impenetrable

Though it changes through the seasons
It constantly harbors life
In spring time, the green leaves unfurl
Heralding in new hope for a good year

The summer brings sunshine and warmth
And the tree provides shade
While every fall, new acorns are shed
Creeping through the grass, trying to grow

And then the long cold winter
Bare and brown, but slowly breathing
The years all pass like this
Never changing. never slowing

And still the lingering oak tree
Stands proud and tall
While the busy world changes around it
How nice standing still must be.
