“A Tree That Took Flight”

Kieran Maynard

At the plain’s edge
Right at the cliff over the valley
Stood a tree we wished at for good luck

Silly, heroic,
Watching our comings and goings
That tree towered over us all

Its bark was rubbed smooth
Where small hands could reach
Inside it was too tangled to fathom

Once the wind howled
And at the dawn’s light
That tree was nowhere to be found
