Oak-is the symbol of Strength and Endurance, much like my Grandmother was. (photo-Camryn at 3 months)




Arms of Oak

Peacefully a mourning dove coos,
Pearched in the arms of oak,
Sheltering this delicate one,
Leaves rustling as she spoke.

Soft words of wisdom she enbarked,
Wings whistled as it flew,
This old oak proudly stood watchful,
Till it flew out of view.

The ability to hold a young one in our arms is so precious and so fleeting. We can only hope they have gained as much from those moments as we. It seems that way for you and your grandmother, at least.
Thanks for sharing this, Christine.

This is a sweet poem, Christine, and Camryn is beautiful. My Great-Grandmother was the strongest woman I've known and she always loved oak trees. I never considered the connection as to why. Now, it makes sense!!
