Strength Of A Tree - Poem by Mary Balthazar

I feel your strength like that of a tree
Strong, deep`rooted and totally free
Standing on your own never falling low
Holding up against fierce winds that blow

Bearing heat under the sunniest time of day
While giving shade to children at play
A place of shady rest for the weary of mind
Holding your arms out for birds to find
Protection in nesting come spring time

I feel your battle against nature's seasons
For each one created God has His reasons
Winter preserves water given to the earth
Spring for thawing living waters of rebirth
Summer warms the earth with life of lights
While Autumn's sights glorifies and delights

But through it all you stand mighty and tall
Like a tree battling forces that never falls
I feel your strength whenever a crisis calls
