Goodbye Old Oak

photo of old tree


Crackling in the flames

Wisdom curls of smoke

A thousand years of names


Goodbye Old Oak

Burning on the green

Memories in the air

Of landscapes unseen


Goodbye Old Oak

Branches reached out

None could hold more

The circles within

Tracing eras at the core


Goodbye Old Oak

The calling of the sky

Descendants of the age

Bearing the fruits

And words of sage


Goodbye Old Oak

We saw the chain

Bark like birds among the blue

The clearing of your leaves

Blinking tears enjoyed the view


Goodbye Old Oak

Now burning with warmth

We gather around your glow

As we plant more memories

To honor what you sow
