Lady of Grace – a poem
Lady of grace, Your silvery wood, A pioneering presence When you once stood. Enigmatic elegance, Tall and slender, Your purity shone With perfect splendour. Sorrow sprang When your beauty fell, For I was enchanted By your fertile spell.
Noble Pear – a poem
Noble pear, Standing there, Your gracefulness Without compare. Tall and proud, Branches wide, Laden with your Female pride. So many years, So much seen, You stand alone As crone, As queen.
