Under the Tree

In the middle
of a field where cows roam
there is a large tree
that has obviously stood alone for some time
it's branches reaching out in all directions

under the tree
there is green
when there is no green on the grass without shade
there is green
and often the cows will be there
when it's hot

under the tree
whose branches reach out like welcoming arms

be cool
I'll always be here speaks the tree
for as long as I stand
alone in the field
surrounded by grass

God abide
