Our Casuarina Tree

Rating: 4.6
LIKE a huge Python, winding round and round
The rugged trunk, indented deep with scars,
Up to its very summit near the stars,
A creeper climbs, in whose embraces bound
No other tree could live. But gallantly
The giant wears the scarf, and flowers are hung
In crimson clusters all the boughs among,
Whereon all day are gathered bird and bee;
And oft at nights the garden overflows
With one sweet song that seems to have no close,
Sung darkling from our tree, while men repose.

An amazing write- - How the casuarina tree becomes the symbol of a loved one, bringing memories of beloved land and people! Let me quote from this lovely poem- - LIKE a huge Python, winding round and round The rugged trunk, indented deep with scars, Up to its very summit near the stars, A creeper climbs, in whose embraces bound No other tree could live.

An excellent poem from a girl who had died so young. I could glimpse her nostalgia stemming from her recollections. Thanks P H for selecting this poem as the poem of the day and introducing to many of us such to her writings.
