Sing for the Oak Tree,

The monarch of the wood;

Sing for the Oak Tree,

That groweth green and good;

That groweth broad and branching

Within the forest shade;

That groweth now, and yet shall grow 

When we are lowly laid!

- Mary Howitt -

The Oak Tree

Hoarsely to the midnight moon

Voiced the oak his rugged rune:

"Harken, sibyl Moon, to me;

Heat the saga of the Tree."
