The Legend of the Dogwood
In Jesus time, the dogwood grew
 To a stately size and a lovely hue.

 'Twas strong & firm it's branches interwoven
 For the cross of Christ its timbers were chosen.

Seeing the distress at this use of their wood
 Christ made a promise which still holds good:

 "Never again shall the dogwood grow
 Large enough to be used so

 Slender & twisted, it shall be
 With blossoms like the cross for all to see.

 As blood stains the petals marked in brown
 The blossom's center wears a thorny crown.

 All who see it will remember me
 Crucified on a cross from the dogwood tree.

 Cherished and protected this tree shall be
 A reminder to all of my agony."
