The Tree and the Bird

A crooked old tree stood alone
On top of Mount the Third
Stretching his roots into the stone
Enjoying songs of the homeless bird
A heavy storm hit him hard.
Scared birds flew away to weep
For he’s no longer their guard
Time came for his eternal sleep
But he fought until his last breath.
One bird stayed and sang all along
In the sunshine they met their death
Resting on the mount where they belong
Mountains last forever in the storm.
