Old and gnarled...but here I stand
Upon this green and pleasant land
Surrounded by this scenic view
I started as a shoot...then grew
A new and tender shoot.. I once
Full of myself...of confidence
Young and healthy, strong and bold
( Who would think I'd get this old!)
Graceful branches..reaching high
I grew so tall, I touched the sky
But now all that is in the past
I'm withered now.....twas not to last
My boughs grow heavy each passing year
I'm not as graceful now..I fear
And with each season, I grow weak
A dying tree, I hear you speak
I'm old and gnarled, but still I stand
Upon this green and pleasant land.
