The wind did what wind does
and blew and blew
like a bully it pushed that tree
but the branches knew what to do.
Bend but not break
the wind would not win this one
the roots held it in place
and waited for the wind to be done.
Because a tree knows how
to face that threatening bully
bend the branches, roots deep
and the wind won’t defeat the tree.
