The Copper Beech


Sunlight Streaming through
The sombre canopy illuminating

A smooth gray trunk and
Arched boughs.

A Cathedral atmosphere
Of broad appearance.

Glinting sunlight
Flashes on the eye
Of deep wonder
And might descending.

In the litter of fallen
Leaves and fruits
Depending.
Fresh bulbs prosper.

Of copper leaf,
Purplish radiance

Create a feast
Of colour blazon in
Natures delight.

Natures beautiful tree
In anyone's sight.

The Copper Beech
In full radiant sunlight.
