standing still

wind rustles the limbs

scatters the leaves

brushes the ground

years of wear and tear

slowly peling

many feet high

once just a seed

love and care

made it grow

roots deep in the ground

make it stable

as people lean against

for suppost

winter comes

it'll fade away

until spring comes again

bright green leaves soak up the sun

fall's the prettiest

colors of every shade

fall gently down



and wither away

standing still many secrets to tell

many more to come

each could say what it's been through

has it's own story
