The Dogwood Transformed
By Don Iannone

Oh dogwood, what have
they done to you?
It wasn't your fault
that men two thousand years ago
chose you for The job.
How could you know?
Dear tree, who grew so tall, and from
that fateful day forward on Calvary Hill,
you were forever transformed,
and so were we.
Your cross-shaped blossoms
and ever so delicate branches today
are lasting reminders
that Christ's blood
was shed upon your
once strong timbers.
Never again,
shall you be asked
to bear such a burden.
