The Oak Tree
by Johnny Ray Ryder Jr

A mighty wind blew night and day
It stole the oak treeís 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 since my birth
Youíll never touch them, for you see
They are the deepest part of me

Until today, I wasnít sure
Of just how much I could endure
But now Iíve found, with thanks to you
Iím stronger than I ever knew
