The Old Man of Gadebridge Taken by D Greenidge

Ah sweet old man how long
have you stood guard?
For centuries it seems
against battles in part

Standing proud over
your domain
Forever I thought
you’d remain

But in these times
worse came along
Cutting you down
with teeth sharp and long

Now sadly you are
a stump and overgrown
The stories you could’ve told
what they did chills me to the bone

Sweet old man of Gadebridge
rest ye well in peace
Know your are missed by many
In you treebeard we still believe

The Remains of the Old Man of Gadebridge taken by Darren Greenidge
