Favorite Quotations The oak Tree
A mighty wind blew day and night
It stole the oak trees leaves away
then snapped its bows 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 each leaf away, shake my limbs and make me sway"

"But I have roots stretched in the earth
Growing strong since my birth
You'll never touch them for you see
They are the deepest part of me

    The Oak Tree
    by Johnny Ray Ryder Jr

    A mighty wind blew night and day
    It stole the oak tree's 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
    You'll never touch them, for you see
    They are the deepest part of me

    Until today, I wasn't sure
    Of just how much I could endure
    But now I've found, with thanks to you
    I'm stronger than I ever knew
