NARRATIVE ON PRINT

A NOBLE oak, deep-rooted, branching wide,
The strength of age, with grace of youth combined ;
A tender vine the spiney boughs o'erlaid,
And round the stem her pliant form entwined.

Fair Ethie's nurslings nestled in the shade,
Amidst its leaves the tuneful choirs were seen ;
Their music blest the tendrils overhead
Which clothed the oak in Nature's fairest green.

In light and shade the years flew swiftly by,
Sweet were the songs the Ethie minstrels sung ;
Two hopeful clusters blest the admiring eye,
And gratulation fell from every tongue.

NO more the tendrils round the oak entwine,
Vine leaves no more festoon the oaken bough ;
From that tall tree the storm has stript the vine,
And wrapt it round with shades of silent woe.

That noble oak, alone, stands bare and cold,
By wintry blast chilled to the inmost core ;
Of earth its roots will soon renounce their hold,—
The glamour of its sylvan life is o'er.

POEM - THE STRICKEN TREE AT ETHIE

JAMES CRIGHTON - 1883
