This was an awesome poem. The last stanza left a powerful impact to the reader. I loved the idea of seeing war through a tree's eyes, and the carelessness and ruthfulness of humans and war. Great job with it!

Nice bit of rhyming. Your last few stanzas, however, seemed a bit forced to me:

"By stroke of madness

Into yourselves sown

Upon my short hill

I am overthrown

No more do I stand

For through your folly

You have defeated

A simple oak tree"

Good luck in your future writing crash projects.

We humans can destroy ANYTHING...people! Good poem, original subject matter, interesting way of writing about war. Thanks as always for reviewing, and write on.

i really like this, its a beautiful idea and full of some really moving images. the only thing i would maybe question is the lack of punctuation; i just find that it allows you to convey to the reader how it is you want the poem to be read, as otherwise they can interpret it in totally different ways, it can also make it that much more poignant.

thanks for the reveiew!

Well done, nice rhythm. I like it. I adore nature, and it is ashame what man and technology and war are doing to it...but I'll never dare place a tree above a man.

Good job, simple and sweet.

You use some strong imagery there, very powerful, I got lots of pictures straight away. This is what happens almost averyday to many mighty trees like that oak tree, a very good poem.
