Artist's Description


Live thy Life,
Young and old,
Like yon oak,
Bright in spring,
Living gold;
Summer-rich
Then; and then
Autumn-changed,
Soberer-hued
Gold again.
All his leaves
Fallen at length,
Look, he stands,
Trunk and bough,
Naked strength
…Alfred Tennyson

There are trees in my neighbourhood that never shed their leaves, some oak, some poplar, giving the impression even in winter, of eternal sunlight and adding lovely texture to the streetscapes…
On a grey day they light up the area, and when the sun shines they glow with life…
They are living examples of the sentiment expressed by the poet when he tells us at the beginning of the poem that we must be just like the Oak is through all the seasons, with strength that doesn’t change…in other words we should spend our lives, "living gold
"…Toronto Canada…
