The Proud Tree (poem)

Once in a grassy glade stood tree so proud

The grass grew tall beside the mighty tree

With every passing breeze the grass there bowed

But tree stood tall and firm as it could be


One day the tree did ask it friend the grass

Why is it that you greet each breeze this way

You bow to every stranger that comes pass

But for its answer grass gave gentle sway


A wind a storm just happened on their field

The grass just bowed as it had times before

And as before the tree just couldn’t yield

So angered wind tossed tree upon the floor


And as the once proud tree now slowly died

It watched the grass there bowing by its side
