A Tree's Shadow Is Heaven

A Tree's Shadow Is Heaven

1 min 138 1 min 138

My roots are spread wide and long

To pave the way for making me strong

The color of spring flowers shall render a crown

On my branches spread wide, bent and brown

To provide you succor, to provide you shade

From the sweltering heat made to fade

By the gentle touch of the mild breeze

That swings to and fro like a circus trapeze.


The golden rays of the sun play hide and seek

While glistening dewdrops take a peek,

Sharing a glimmer to the leaves green

As the peacocks below dance and preen

Can you not feel my presence here

That drives away the summer fear

Of a fiery day and a sweaty night

My shadow presenting a heavenly sight.
