The Rowan Tree

Glorious and graceful, a tree to admire,

Feathery foliage and berries of fire.

Delicate leaves like friendly hands,

Wave to all who watch and stand.

Clusters of flowers, with a scent so sweet,

Fills the air with a fragrant treat.

Berries like rubies, red with a shine,

Nourish the birds, throughout Autumn time.

An Autumn special show, you share,

And a stunning time, we await each year.

Celtic myths you bring to our lives,

The tree of life, which makes us wise.

Guarding our families from evil, your goal,

And making us brave, to complete your role.

The tree of life, so strong and tall,

A seasonal beauty, captivating to us all.
