A Fruit-laden Tree!

This thought is upon a fruit-laden Tree
Whose fruits and shades for all were free
It looked at many a rich harvests
Experienced many a droughts
It bore the pangs of scorching sun,
Raining, hailing and snowfall
It witnessed the reigns of many a kings
it sung the notes of many a seasons
Heard moral tales of rise and fall
It was the friend of the big and small
It read of many a coup de tat
Seeds and tender infant plants
Grew under its cool and bounteous shades
Many a travelers took rest and relief
Under its fertile boughs and leaf-arcades;
Last night, the death angel claimed its claim
Now tender plants will grow in pain
Face to face with sunlight and rain
But, the up torn tree will never be rooted again!

    Seeds and tender infant plants
    Grew under its cool and bounteous shades...
    Now tender plants will grow in pain
    Face to face with sunlight and rain...
    It's sad reality of life...My dad was A Fruit-Laden Tree 4 me...May the Almighty give me strength n courage 2 b the same tree 4 others...

    The poem was getting ever so happy, then suddenly there is that dark angel
    Oh why?
    But the entire piece portrays life
    However good, or great we are, the end will come sometimes.
    Well done.
    Just brilliant

    Great tribute to you dearest uncle. The eldest head is like a, as Ramesh Rai Ji has rightly said, like a banyan. tree. which provides shade, protection and allows smaller plants to grow under its wings. Great write. May God rest his soul in peace.
