The Old Oak

 

 

 

oak tree among snowflakes

you shaded all my summers

you coloured my autumns

and from your new leaves

will come my marriage crown

 

 

In the Latvian Summer Solstice celebration, known as Līgo, women adorn themselves with garlands of flowers, and men with my name have garlands of oak leaves. I rather fancy that idea for my wedding.
