SACRED ANCIENT TREES
Many towns in Egypt with tombs
Where Osiris was put to rest
Had groves of planted willows,
There were terraces with myrrh trees.
Surrounding the Temple's sanctuaries
Gardens created by Paradise of Amon
An earthly palace of the Sun God
The legendary homeland of other Gods!
A special expedition to Punt;
As the legend proclaimed
Was the southern end of the Red Sea.
Hatshepsut’s architect and councilor,
Senmut, get the myrrh trees.
In the gardens trees stood!
There is evidence...
In the archaeological records
Tree worshiping in prehistoric world,
Though the existence of Totems
Carved from wood that may have held.
A sacred significance by the Pole
topped with a bird's body.
In the early Historical period,
There is considerable evidence,
That in the Ancient Egyptian world
Several types of Sacred Trees appeared.
Those were always associated
with the life on Earth.
