The Oak
By Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809–1892)
 
LIVE thy Life,
  Young and old,
Like yon oak,
Bright in spring,
  Living gold;        5
 
Summer-rich
  Then; and then
Autumn-changed,
Soberer-hued
  Gold again.        10
 
All his leaves
  Fallen at length,
Look, he stands,
Trunk and bough,
  Naked strength.        15
