National Poetry Day Message Poem by Olivia Jocic, Ardingly College Prep.

Dear old oak

.

I’m sorry

I’m sorry we cut you down

I’m sorry that you’re on the ground

Just because I said I’m sorry

Doesn’t mean you have to accept my apology

And now you’re paper

I won’t be able to use you later

because now I have written this letter

(and covered you all in glitter).

Although you may

not be the same

I think you’re beautiful

no matter your name,

plant

tree

wood

paper.

But you know I love you

no matter what,

even if you were turned inot an old grandfather clock

you will always find a special place in my heart

even if I’m in the dark

I’m sorry,

and please do accept my apology,

and I hope you know I send this with love,

and forgive us all for all of the above,

.

Sincerely,

Me
