Old Olive Tree - Poem by Colin Coplin

Brick by brick, stone by stone
Take from others to build your home
Step by step, day by day
Change the face of the mountain to make it your own

But the old olive tree, has known many owners
And now it knows me
And the sky has seen many suns
It now sees me
And the breeze has carved many faces
It now touches mine

There’s good stone here
Foundations are strong
I think I found the place
To call home

Brick by brick, stone by stone
Take from others to build your home
Step by step, day by day
Change the face of the mountain to make it your own

But the old olive tree, has known many owners
And now it knows me
And the sky has seen many suns
It now sees me
And the breeze has carved many faces
It now touches mine
