The Old Oak

Poem By Nina B. Doughty

It has stood a hundred years
And spread its lofty boughs.
It has seen a thousand lovers meet
And make their sacred vows.
It has given shade to many a tramp
Too tired to make his way.
It has sheltered all the little ones
Who came beneath to play.
It has watched a tiny hamlet grow
From village into town
And now because its in their way
They are going to cut it down!

Drink me a toast to the things I have lost.
Toss me a bane for my sorrow!
Fill up my glass while I dim out the past
And reach for a happy tomorrow!


I watch as sunlight slowly rises,
parts the clouds, displays the day
The night dissolves, its blackness merging
as its darkness fades away
