Thanksgiving Walk - Poem by Brandon Griffee

Leaving footprints in the snow,
Walking into the frosted wood,
Arctic winds proceeding to blow,
Deep within the wise oak stood,
Speaking with a swaying branch,
Papers of thought lay on the ground,
Sitting upon nature's bench,
Listening to the old tree sounds,
Telling of the futures fortune,
Always lit by the fullest moon,
Never speaking of the misfortune,
Which has rid the world of soon,
Back again only a year has past,
The tree reformed, now a house,
Though this structure is just a mask,
Still a place for the deer to browse,
Filling with the alluring scene,
Crying as I now realize,
My friend in nature has left me,
With memories of past etched in mine eyes.
