February Oak: Poetry Challenge #17, Shadorma

This is for Jane Dougherty’s Poetry Challenge, a shadorma. The theme is trees.

For my February birthday girls.

Snow dust oak,

The tales you could share

If you spoke.

Limbs now bare,

But remember the girl entranced?

Leaves twirled, how she danced?

 

Yellow swing

There–held a baby

Taken wing,

Sweet, ably

Married, the oak secrets bound.

Childhood gone. Love found.

  1. “Snow dust oak,” and “But remember the girl entranced?”
    are my favorite lines. A sweet wistfulness as well as thankfulness here.
