IT WAS A MUSE TO THOSE THAT SAW,

THE MANY HUES IT ALWAYS WORE.
VELVETY GREEN WHEN IT WAS WARM,
RED AND GOLD THROUGH AUTUMN STORMS.
WINTER ATTACKS, LEAVING IT NAKED AND BARE.
LEFT WILD AND EXPOSED, BUT NOBODY CARES.
IT WHISPERS ITS SADNESS IN A WINTER BREEZE,
NOBODY LOVES A TREE WITH NO LEAVES.
UNDRESSED YOUR BEAUTY IS RAW AND BOLD,

YOUR EMPTY BRANCHES LOOKING SO COLD.

STANDING PROUD FOR THE WORLD TO SEE,
HOW BEAUTIFUL A BARREN TREE CAN BE.
Fiona
