For the wedding Anniversary of Mr and Mrs Allan and Marie Mitchell from Alan grove

The Shepherd's Tree by John Clare

Huge elm, with rifted trunk all notched and scarred,

Like to a warrior's destiny! I love

To stretch me often on thy shadowed sward,

And hear the laugh of summer leaves above;

Or on thy buttressed roots to sit, and lean

In careless attitude, and there reflect

On times and deeds and darings that have been -

Old castaways, now swallowed in neglect, -

While thou art towering in thy strength of heart,

Stirring the soul to vain imaginings

In which life's sordid being hath no part.

The wind of that eternal ditty sings,

Humming of future things, that burn the mind

To leave some fragment of itself behind.

Your grove of trees

The trees in this grove will be carefully planted in protected sites in the Scottish Highlands where they will create homes for wildlife and forests for the future.

Scots pine against a summer blue sky.
Twinflowers in bloom on pine woodland floor.
