Hallo all ,

some time ago I found this poem here on Mudcat , and I liked
it so I kept it ,
Now I am doin my solo cd and I did a tune along with the poem
but I need to know if someone know who made this poem .,
and I need to know if its okei to use it .

The Oak Tree


A mighty wind blew night and day;
It stole the oak tree's leaves away
Then snapped its boughs and pulled its bark
Until the oak was tired and stark.

But still the oak tree held its ground
While other trees fell all around.
The weary wind gave up and spoke,
"How can you still be standing, Oak?"

The oak tree said, "I know that you
Can break each branch of mine in two,
Carry every leaf away,
Shake my limbs, and make me sway.

"But I have roots stretched in the earth,
Growing stronger from my birth.
You'll never touch them, for you see
They are the deepest part of me.

"Until today, I wasn't sure
Of just how much I could endure,
But now I've found, with thanks to you,
I'm stronger than I ever knew."

its a strong message to never give up .

if you know please let know .
all the best Skarpi Iceland .
