~An Autumn Poem from an Old Wise Tree

~September 22, 2020

“I am an old wise tree.”

~

I live by a pond along its shore,

Another year has passed,

I am preparing for winter.

~

People come to visit my pond,

To enjoy the birds and other wildlife,

They come to walk, run, and bicycle.

~

Sometimes they sit on a bench,

Underneath my branches,

I hear them speak.

~

Some are happy I hear them laugh,

Some are sad I hear them cry,

Some talk about troubled times.

~

A virus they say has invaded their world,

These times have brought suffering even death.

Will our lives ever be the same they ask each other.

~

Daily routines have been altered,

Everyday normal activities changed,

Personal interactions are difficult or nonexistent.

~

As one season ends and another begins,

I wish for these troubled times to be over,

I wish for normalcy to return.

~

Have hope my friends who sit underneath me,

For a have lived a long time I am wise,

Love, laughter, and good times will come.

~

Live and value each day to its fullest,

Enjoy these beautiful autumn days,

Have hope my friends who sit underneath me.
