I really loved this poem with its powerful imagery and its message of perseverance in every season of life! We all need to learn the lesson of your maple tree! :) Great job!

This is wonderful! You have taken something most people take for granted and gave it immortality. We shared its history, experienced its pain, and desired to recline in the cool of its spreading arms. Once a stranger, this noble tree has become our friend.
Very very well done. It reads like the many masters I have enjoyed. My only question is why are you in intermediates? If I could only do so well.
Neat poem! I thoroughly enjoyed this tribute to one of my favorite types of tree.
