    The Oak Tree
    by Johnny Ray Ryder Jr.

    A mighty wind blew night and day.

    It stole the Oak Tree’s leaves away.

    Then snapped its boughs

    and pulled its bark

    until the Oak was tired and stark.

    But still the Oak Tree held its ground

    while other trees fell all around.

    The weary wind gave up and spoke,

    How can you still be standing Oak?”

    The Oak Tree said, I know that you

    can break each branch of mine in two,

    carry every leaf away,

    shake my limbs and make me sway.

    But I have roots stretched in the earth,

    growing stronger since my birth.

    You’ll never touch them, for you see

    they are the deepest part of me.
