Giant was the fearless Angel Oak whose roots grew down deep
Watered by God’s creatures who safely came to her to weep.
Her massive and twisted branches lie softened in green moss
To ease the burden, she gladly carried with every single loss.
She bore the weight of tragedy for hundreds of earthly years,
Instead, she clapped and sang at night and gladly bore their tears.
