Trees are an amalgam
Of green and brown.
Green illustrates growth;
And hardened strength by the brown.

Cut a tree in half, you have
a panorama of my life.
Cover the ends in shellac
And display my story.
Every era – a lifeline, to be exact.
Times that smelled sweet
But soon tasted bitter after that.

Old war horses like me,
We were legends in our own timesLike Niseans.
We came in like lions
But now. . . go out like lambs.
On our way to extinction.

But, on our way back to dust,
we only hope and pray
For new trees to take root
On the ground we’ve lain.
