The hanging tree

In meadow green –
Stands a wood tall of thorn
its branches twisted leafless of serene,
yet it only needs one strong arm
to set tortured souls a free.
Pray my love pray that stout be this limb
might I find my way back to you,
for it will bear the weight of every sin
this soul has thus -
