I am Yggdrasil

the World Tree

Axis Mundi

I was here

millions of years

before your race

came to be

There was a time

when we lived in harmony

the deep forest was your shelter

you spoke the language

of the feathered folk

nut and berry

fed your substance

… above all

was the grace

which lifted you

to dance

in a round

with the spirits

of the wood

There was a time

when you had a soul

there came an age

of Poetry and Song

the air was vibrant

from the power of incantation

wand witches

roamed the land

casting spells

magic and healing

learned from speaking

with the eldest trees

There was a time

when courage filled

the heart of the hero…
