Somber Stands the Quiet Oak

Somber stands the quiet oak
Long he watches o’er the fleeting beasts and birds and human beings
Solitary in the midst of grassy seas
Majestically provisioned for the ages long and still
Lonely in his ancient life, in time removed from friend and foe
Watching through the seasons long, a sentinel beneath the journey of the sun
Silent in his somber life
