I Stand All On My Own

By Connor Porter, aged 6, Stawley Primary School, Ashbrittle in Songs of Sacred Places (2000)

I stand all on my own
Cold in winter, hot in summer
Watching people rushing,
Building churches, fighting,
Dying in the wars
People are buried under my roots
I am old,
3,000 years old
Old, wrinkled and wise…
