Daniel Island Live Oaks inspire poetic words!

Posted By Beth on Jan 26, 2015 | 4 comments

Special thanks to Daniel Island resident and author Crystal Klimavicz for crafting the following poem about our majestic and thought-provoking Live Oaks while taking part in our “Art in the Park” event in September 2014. Crystal shared her work at the Daniel Island Historical Society’s Winter/Spring kick-off program on January 20!


A Haiku by Crystal Klimavicz, local author of Falling Through Trees

Oak trees rising high

Their sturdy trunks, winding branches, draping leaves

Tower over all


Children playing ‘round

Ducks waddling, people strolling, bikers whizzing by

Smiles, laughter abound


Trees offer us shade

Yet so much more with support, hope and life

Protecting, guiding


All those who go by

Nurturing the souls of the park and all her guests

To stand tall, rise high
