A Normal Occasion - Poem by Julian Old

Hedgetops were shivering.
Tree began to cry.
Flowers were bowing their heads,
It was as if the royals had just arrived.

Bare and naked the trees waved their arms
Nature was showing us all of its charms
Biting wind hurled, whirled and shrieked.
Bringing the animals and royals to their feet

This had been a most remarkable day
For every one in every way
Finally winter brought the ceremony to a close
It was time for a new era of fresh born cloth.
