"The Mighty Oak" by Bill Costa
It stands alone beside the busy lives that pass it every day.
It was witness to the turmoils of the depression and the agony of the wars.
It is where lovers met to shape their dreams.
Where the ashes of some are scattered among its branches.

It is our symbol of strength and durability,
A proud monument to all its village people.
Whether in its wintry nakedness or its summer glory,
It will always be a part of our lives,
It is our “Bedford Oak”.
