Some say the world will end in fire
some say in ice
from what I have tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire
but if it had to perrish twice
I think i know enough of hate
that ice is also great
and would suffice
Fire and ice by robert Frost


The tall oaks, so large and mighty
The oldest things that live on this mountain
Trees that have stood for centuries
 watching the quarrels of men, far bellow
Watching bloody battles
That happen under their boughs.
The trees, The guardians of stone

They watch river flow
Clear like glass but cold like snow
They know each stone on their mountain
Never to get confused for they know
Every fleck of earth, every leaf on a tree
To every high flying bird
to even the lowly flea
To the mighty bears
Even the harmless mice
Every tree knows everything
Because the trees, The guardians of stone.

The trees strong and tall never to fall
Only to grow stronger
The river running over there roots
The rain falling onto the leafs
These trees that have stood for centuries
Will stand a thousand more
These trees are the guardians of stone
The guardians of the mountain
The guardians of the earth

I like it. Sometimes the rhythm feels a bit off, though it just might be me. I kinda get what you're saying about trees being guardians of stone, but it feels a bit more vague at times. I'm just nitpicking it now, just keep writing and I promise eventually you'll get published in teen ink. :D

*their. Quarrels of men and bloody battles are relative, no? So I think you should work on those two lines. Great piece though! :3

I don't have an attitude problem, you have a problem with my attitude, and that's not my problem.

This is really detailed. I like the image. maybe make it a little bit longer, and put in some more details about the other surroundings. it is by water? what is the stone?
