There is nothing more peaceful and satisfying than a beautiful nature scene built with God's own love, and for that reason I revere nature and all its glorious beauty.


An Old Oak Tree

I have an old oak tree
It's long gnarling limbs reaching high
Sitting like a sentry in my front yard
Fingers touching the spacious sky

The little squirrels run up and down
The huge old tree trunk so big
Scouting the ground and the grass
For acorns they like to dig.

I know the birds live there too
Birdsong whispers through the air
I watch them sometimes flying past
When the weather is sunny fair.

Nature is filled with marvelous treasures
For all people to truly enjoy
God furnishes us with the beauty
Filling our lives with worthwhile employ.

Now that old tree wakes up each morning
With sunlight filtering through its foliage
Sending out beams of light and heat
Through leaves, limbs, twigs and branches.

So when you're tired and lonely
With no place to go and no one to see
Just visit an old oak tree
And it'll greet you like it does me.

© April/2007 Jeanette Cooper

Jeanette, I love big old trees. This gives me a clear picture of the huge trees on Grandma's farm. I love to sit under them and listen to the wind comb through the leaves.

Ah ...this is lovely Jeanette...reminds me of a huge beech tree on my property where I go to meditate frequently...something about it's strong roots,deep in the ground...seems to help pull the strength of nature from the earth for me as I lean against "her" in silence...so well done! ....erin

There's nothing like an old oak tree, and your vivid words and dazzling picture take us there.

A thing we have in common, Jeanette: In my novel The Paradise of Revenge and in my two posted short stories "Yours and Mine" and "You and Me," I reference a Great Horned Owl in his craggily old oak tree.

Some things in nature are universally recognized and loved by all. In your lovely poem An Old Oak Tree you share the magic. I especially like your lines, "So when you're tired and lonely/With no place to go and no one to see/Just visit an old oak tree/And it'll greet you like it does me."

An enjoyable and uplifting read, Jeanette. Thank you.
