The Bully

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.
