Aurora Borealis in Canada - Gift to the Solitary Tree

In the darkness stands a tree, Alone and strong, yet silently, No company but the cold night air, No solace but the stars up there.

Its branches reach up to the sky, As if to grasp the world up high, But in the blackness it stands alone, A single sentinel, a wooden throne.

But every once in a little while, The aurora comes with a gentle smile, And bathes the tree in a wondrous light, A colorful dance in the dark of night.

The tree stands tall, proud and bright,

In the midst of the aurora's might, And for a moment, it's not alone, But with the beauty of the world shown.

So even in the darkest hour,

When the night holds all its power, The tree stands strong, and knows its worth, For it's blessed with the aurora's birth.

A lone tree silhouetted against the night sky with the breathtaking aurora borealis dancing above—a poetic spectacle.
In the darkness stands a tree,

The poem "Aurora Borealis in Canada - Gift to the Solitary Tree" paints a vivid picture of a lone tree standing strong in the darkness, with no one to keep it company but the stars.

Powerful piece. (The teacher in me can easily see it being read as a dramatic monologue or even a choral reading.)
