Below the frozen ground he waits,
In restless sleep he lies
Protected from the wind and rain
That flow from steely skies.
Cold winter snows begin to melt
Revealing nature’s best—
Unknown strength begins to rise
Boldness to pass the test.
Day by day he stretches forth
With courage new life brings—
Timeless changes make him soar
On flights of eagle’s wings.
Freshness comes with gentle rains,
Relieves the summer’s heat
Power bleeds through woody veins;
A weakness to defeat.
Daring he saluted cloudless skies
Graceful and upright, bold
Visions to capture for his own—
A splendor to behold.
Autumn leaves fall all around,
Like graceful butterflies;
Limbs grow stronger every year
And reaches to the skies.
He stretches out to fill the air,
Stands bold beside his peers
With his solid strength and power,
He’ll stand for many years.
Seasons come and seasons go
Grand valor takes its place,
No longer swayed by winds of time—
Grown to majestic grace.
Daring to pass the test of time,
He gazes down to see
God’s design of might and courage;
Boldness in a cedar tree.
