The Lonely Pine

FBCGrotonPoetry


The lonely pine
In thickly wood
Beneath the blind
Of others stood

Gathered ’round
Esteemed by all
And looking down
On him so small

And passerby
With much delight
Of giant forest
In his sight

The lonely pine
Below the view
Stands alone
Unseen by you

But from His throne
The height of all
And looking down
I’m just as tall

Deflected light
Extended rain
Obscured below
He will sustain

The lonely pine
In thickly wood
Beneath sublime
He bravely stood
