A Particular Tree (Major Oak, Nottinghamshire)

Beyond the iron gates
of the low stone wall,
where the view widens
on the slow rising hills

is a model of serious trees.

There amongst the birds,
fields and things that are
permanent and unbroken,
we look up at that tree as

true and honest wisdom.

Its limbs stretch out in
the morning sun for a well-
earned nap, but, we’re none
the wiser for what it wants.
