The Web Poetry Corner - M A Heathcote - The yew tree

The yew tree

by

M A Heathcote

Oh, beneath the mantle
of a sentry, yew
like a drop of ancient,
trembling dew.

I alone; stood afraid
amidst its calming call of shade.

Amidst its dark satanic whisper!
I heard the silent grave.
Echo through my soul and mind,
showing me from whence I came
The nightmares of my; shame.

I stood alone; stood afraid
amidst its calming call of shade.

I hither through the ethereal pines
that slowly stole a way_
Out of the yew; that would hide
my lonely youth away.

I stood alone; stood afraid
amidst its calming call of shade.
