Family Tree

Our tree is dying,
leaf by leaf they fall to the ground,
without a say in the matter,
and stuck to the branch,
we watch them leave,
unable to catch them,
Before they meet there dealth

Anew: to the Tolkien Tree

Remember how he came and how he went,
Born far away the flakes of your soft bark,
A quartered apple in the muse’s hand,
The evergreen fond memory, our spark.
Up, up, up
Into the errant autumn winds.
Leaves stutter in the gust – a maudlin dance,
The whisper of time’s awl.
Up, up
Rend your unsightly pining skin,
Become a lute, a cup, a battle lance.
There is no infamy in such a fall.
The wheel has turned where grief and branches lay.
Remember how he passed and how he stayed -
Small things through which the darkness’s kept at bay.
