THE LEGEND OF THE DOGWOOD TREE
This was sent to me from: Little Sparrow
Thank you Little Sparrow.
When Christ was on earth,
the dogwood grew to a towering size,
with a lovely hue .
it's branches were strong and interwoven ,
and for christ's cross it's timbers were chosen,
being distressed at the use of this wood ,
christ made a promise ,
which still holds good .
not ever again shall the dogwood grow ,
to be large enough for such a tree ,
and so slender and twisted it shall always be ,
with cross shaped blossoms for all to see,
the petals shall have bloodstains marked in brown ,
ans all who see it ,
will think of me ,
nailed to a cross ,
from a dogwwod tree ,
protected and cherished this tree shall be ,
a reflection to all of my agony .
