but otherwise

the smallest things

build courage

and in the distance

clouds roll across the sky

although parts of me

are an endless summer

i know when to wrap up warm

build you a fire

wood and words

save you from the monsters



and you’ll hear rumours

of demons and their part in

my education

but otherwise i am the oak tree

sheltering you from the storm

that you can sometimes be
