THE. OAK TREE
On' a mountain top has stood for centuries past,
An oak, with branches moaning to the blast,
And overlooking ,dells and vernal plains
Protected men from heat and Autumn rains.
Beneath the bark so smooth and milky white,
The woodsman seeks the heart with cruel' delight,
No conscious thought has he of doing wrong,
As he cuts the aged oak, so broad and strong,
Around whose spreading base weak vines have clung
Whose branches are with yellow mosses hung,
The ivy o'er the creeping babymine
With gorgeous mantle does the trunk entwine.
A mass of buttercups with hands of gold
Make bright the earth beneath the limbs so old,
And daisies white, that fringed with dainty pink,
Nod, as gradually the breezes sink.
This tree, that overhangs the blushing rose, i
More famous for majestic beauty grows
Each year, as on the lonely mountain wild,
It stands with leafy shade, dame Nature's child.
In March, the meadowlark with joyous song
Cheerfully helps to hurry Spring along,
And spiders' silvry tents upon the grass,
When filled with dew, a fairyland surpass.
The leaves, that green above, and white below,
Give shade, in Autumn fall before the snow-
The twisted branches are with acorns crowned,
Within whose walls the baby oaks are found.
If beauty cannot save the oak tree bough,
Some pleading words may help protect it now.
Must we watch the lifted axe and not defend
The one that is to us a helping friend,
That cheers the world, gives peace and quiet, when we
So tired rest beneath the old oak tree?
Z. E. GRAHAM.
