One Hundred and Twenty

October 13, 2007

Twelve tall trees standing
Forest of ancient strength
Sun touches their highest leaves
Birds nest in the life giving branches

Boughs sway in the breeze
Move in the mighty wind
But the ancient giants stand firm
Nourished from above and below

Twelve decades they have stood
Designed and planted in soil deep
Home to creatures, many
Admired by God above

Surviving for the ages
Living in highest truth
Belief in life of hope and length
Nourished and graced by strength
