'The Beautiful Tree' - Poem by Michael Micmac Mccrory

For hundreds of years
It has stood nobly
It is so beautiful
It will reduce you to joyful tears

It's branches a playground
For generations of kids
It's dark green leaves
Dark as the secrets it hid

It has a gory history
And met many bad men
It was the hanging tree
Way back when

For hundreds of years
It has stood nobly
With it's history of varied tears
Now it is so beautiful


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Have been laid low for a while, just practising.
