Old Tree (Part 1)

Old tree in the woods,
Quiet and tall
Standing there day after day
Through storms and sunshine,
Sunrises and sunsets
Leaf drop and new leaves
and all that you’ve seen,
if I come close and listen
will you whisper your secrets to me,
or, lend me your strength
so I can reach down,
take hold, and grow
strong roots like you?
