Oak and willow

One of four short poems* written to hang on one of a number of small artificial trees intended to decorate a local church at Christmas 2010.

Hearts of oak, once our defences,
Now support our garden fences.
Willow, though, still guards one’s wicket
(Other timbers just aren’t cricket).

*The others are Hug a tree, Poet-tree and The Music Tree.
