Stop by and see this and several other exhibits is the Carnegie's galleries!
Old Tree In February
Green leaves are beautiful indeed,
And crisp snow pleases the eye,
But on this hill I struggle to see
The beauty that passes by.
Old tree: grace rising from ground,
Branches elegant in the air.
Small trees gather round,
And dream of summer fair.
Your bark is rough and battered,
Your roots bite the earth,
Your crown is richly tattered,
As you stand both blessed and cursed.
Old tree: scarred and worn,
Sleeping, graceful, mass and form.
Beauty veiled, branches broken,
Word of creation yet unspoken.
