Hello my Den Friends... I am return... I was inspired to write this poem after the passing of a WWII war hero...

a Birch stood in a forest
amongst lines of straighter trees

at first glance they all towered
arms thick with shimmering leaves

all clustered together in a maze
a snapshot of one picturesque scene

yet this birch that stood amongst many
had a different kind of lean

a closer view revealed specialty
confirming scars that battles made

its leaning stance somewhat taxing
and though bowed, it did not break

though wounds of distant wars
and battles of ice storms remained

a stronger stance, non-wavering resilience
is what this birch retained

throughout the years he shared a strengthened coat
of love and wisdom with others ...cedars and oaks

now time has come when he has to move on
to make way for uprising sprouts

who will rise up in strength from wisdom he shared
in dealing with life’s storms and warring bouts.

YOU HAVE SUBSTANTIATED WELL THAT FAMOUS QUOTE, "OLD SOLDIERS NEVER DIE, THEY JUST FADE AWAY". AND EVEN THOUGH THEY 'MOVE ON', THEIR WISDOM AND LOVE REMAINS...FOREVER. AN EXCELLENT WORK...VERY MUCH ENJOYED. SO GLAD THAT YOU ARE BACK. LOVE AND BLESSINGS,

Janice Beaty Springs, the "Birch Tree" knew the attack upon the forest was formidable and yet stood its place to defend. Though bending to remain standing from the onslaught, its branches survived to instill honor and resolve among the other members of the forest. A tree of distinction that though impaired in battle resisted in noble fashion. A beautiful analogy and tribute my friend. May you always know love joy and peace. Jon Michael

The purity of your sentiments express deep regard for the passing of another veteran. God bless....

Be always safe,
Karen
