Robyn's Tree

Some of you may remember the poetry of my niece Robyn from last year. I think she's done it again with this one. ....

Lord make me a tree
I want to reach up to the sky
To feel your light
Growing close to you
As you live through me
Let the birds they come
Upon my branches rest
Fill me with your songs
I dance in the breeze
The leaves my dress
Let my fruit be sweet
Loved by all who taste
Let the lives I bare
Be full of your bounty
Endless love to complete
Let my roots grow deep
As I feed on your gifts
Thankful for your enrichment
You nourish my life
With the love you seep
Let my bark be thick
Protect me from rot
May my branches bend
I sway with the breeze
Not snapped like a stick
To be the bloom of spring
Enduring the cold
I've stood through the snow
I'm tried in the winter
Return adorned another ring
