The Echoing Pines~by rldubour


 

The Echoing Pines

The days of old in the midst of time.
The Legend was told of the Echoing Pines.
Ahh, the Echoing Pines
They brought many a man to the end of their line.

The mystery was a sight to behold.
And until this day, may it never unfold.
They swayed so gently against the breeze.
Yet, dared thy man to be at ease.

There was many a man who tried to find.
Yet none could conquer those Echoing Pines.
The Echoing Pines so soft they sway.
They echoed their cries as if to say.

“Set forth in me if you may.”
“But you shall never see another day!”
“Hear our warning and take thy stand.”
“For we shall not heel to mortal man!”

“Hear our warning, go from whence you came.”
“For these Echoing Pines shall never be tamed!’
Then the earth trembled, crumpled and groaned.
As the Echoing Pines were soon to be thrown!

The blaze came with its fury, came with its might.
Not sparing the Pines their last night of life.
The wind with its crying as mean as can be.
Saying over and over, ‘The end to these trees!”

And then it was over as fast as it came.
And all that was left was there to remain.
With their last echo of life as if from the damned.
“For we shall not heel to mortal man!”

Those were the days and tales of the time.
And this was the Legend of the Echoing Pines.
