Symbolize


Broad, Immense, Strong and True
To look at it is to see you
Sit down beside it
Rest your head
Against its trunk you'll understand.
Its my tree
The one I love
Inspiration for my words
It stands defiant to the wind and rain
It stands alone
Provides me shade
In it rest a gracious heart
A home to many
It gives a lot.
It symbolizes all I think
When I think of you to me
You stand strong
You waver not
Your a home to my heart
You give to me your time and love
And ask not in return
For your the shoulder I rest my head
The arms I crave
The strength I beg
For underneath this tree I think
of all the things you are to me.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Outside where I live there is this one oak tree taller than all the rest. Every night I go out and sit beneath it to write. It is a safe place, just like there is a person out there who is a safe place for my heart.

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
