Cane and able…for now

A gift from the tree guy….that or a very expensive and unfinished cane

A cane of oak

An oak tree unknowingly
made an oaken cane for me

The tree guy cut it down
and leaned it by my door

For months it stood entombed in bark
til I with spokeshave set it free

A crooked bit of wood but strong
The ideal staff to lean upon & cudgel if need be

To beat a path to afterlife
Where from this veil of tears I’m free
