Lonesome Tree - Poem by Linda Beach

There was a tree,
a very lonesome tree,
for he had not a friend,
to pretent with and to play with.

Then one day came along a swing,
who wrapped himelf around the tree,
the swing started to sway and play,
the tree was happy for he had a friend.

The tree began to sway and play along with the swing,
along came a child who sat upon the swing,
the swing broke and the child left,
and the tree was alone once again.

    Lovely and clever.... dare i say the ups and downs of life... im not being flippant here, your write took me on a journey, the first part was quite traditional, then it lifted when the swing wrapped itself around (hugging, it seemed) and the child came, i assumed would be even more uplifting but the child ruined the companionship... i really enjoyed this...thanks karen (Report) Reply
