The trials of the oak tree that held the house down during the tornado have inspired some beautiful words.
This is a verse written by songwriter Dan Cates, from North Carolina. Dan was a participant in the last Woodsong Farm Songwriter Retreat, the last gathering before the tornado.
The angel oak once tall and proud
branches reach to touch the clouds
though wicked winds blow deadly breath
the angel oak protects in death.
Thank you, Dan.
