National Poetry Writing Month – 4/27

Standard

There’s an Ent in the back yard
Covered in ivy
I think he’s been sleeping
Since my mother and her brothers and sister grew up.
This spring, there are doves nesting in him
I wonder if he’s awakened
Or if he’s still asleep and dreaming
That there are baby doves in his hair.
