The Wanaka Lake Willow Tree If you were asked to describe The scene before you now I think you might be tempted to close your eyes And rub a thoughtful brow An image of idyllic beauty Wonderfully here on display It’s Lake Wanaka Willow in New Zealand Near Dunedin many miles away The fourth largest Lake in the area Extensive and 300 metres deep Yet the roots of the tree sometimes on dry land As the waters slowly seep Which is when the Willow might sustain damage From the tourists visiting there And because of so much time beneath water There’s little growth to help the tree repair The angry sky above Reflected in the water below The hills that guard the background The Golden Trees of Autumn Enhance this wonderful show But as I close the page now The last image that I see Could that be a Reindeer antlers raised in the water Oh! No it’s the Wanaka Willow tree Dennis Shrubshall 5th March 2021
I'll drink to that Kim.
