Elder

What things have you seen
  tree which stands so tall
So wide, with spreading
  branches, your age is the
Secret hidden within for
  none to know except in
Your big beauty, funny
  how one in life is not
Looked at as big, beautiful
  spreading wisdom in the
Depths of seeing so much
  change and chance and
What has evolved in decades
  some wise folk who
Can say we've been through
  this before and we will
Learn again as light and
  dark play and the bright
New moon dawns on the
  horizon of exploration
