      THE DOGWOOD TREE

      When Christ was on earth, the dogwood grew
      To a towering size with a lovely hue.
      Its branches were strong and interwoven
      And for Christ’s cross its timbers were chosen.  

      Being distressed at the use of the wood
      Christ made a promise which still holds good:  

      “Not ever again shall the dogwood grow
      To be large enough for a tree, and so
      Slender and twisted it shall always be
      With cross-shaped blossoms for all to see.  

      The petals shall have bloodstains marked brown
      And in the blossom’s center a thorny crown.
      All who see it will think of me,
      Nailed to a cross from a dogwood tree.
      Protected and cherished this tree shall be
      A reflection to all of my agony.”
