At The Park - Poem by Cynthia BuhainBaello

At the park, there stands a tree,
Its twisted trunk marks well its years
With leaves still green, its branches proudly
Embrace the sky and drink its tears.

There was a time when it was young,
When birds would crown it with their nest,
Its leaves danced, swayed to a summer song
But now this tree would soon bend to rest.

For a time it gave such a verdant shade,
And lived for its noble purpose and reason
This tree has shown what from life could be made
In silence, giving us the hope to go on.
