A Tree in Winter

A Tree in Winter

 I am laid bare

All my beauty is gone, fallen down and blown away

There was a time when I was something to behold

In the autumn of my life my leaves gave the impression of glory

I am laid bare

I am  exposed

Only cold grey limbs can now be seen

The cold winds have revealed all of my scars and broken branches

In the moonlight I now cast only frightening images upon the ground

I am exposed


I have hope

Through my bareness the beauty of heaven can now be seen

My leaves no longer obscure the true glory of the Son

Summer is promised and I will be restored

I have hope
