Creative Poetry: ‘Ornamental, Nature’ Nov 28

Ornamental, Nature

by Amy Ward


I love to see when you paint the road red

Covering fields by your frail fingertips

The hope of loss your charity


Then bare and covered in sparkling pearls

You hold a hidden smile in your core

The taking, giving, is not owned


Still, I sense a warmth in you

With what your branches hold

A knowing in your veins


Sacrificing annually

Bring consolation home

Adorned anew, and giving


From generous tree, to on and beyond

There standing a portrait of promises

You are legacy, a trifle I seek
