The Passing of Trees
by Yvette Roelofse

Not For Sale

What happened to those dying trees
I spotted here last Christmas eve;
that stood abandoned and alone,
two lonely ghosts bereft of leaves?

Is that them there beneath the snow
That’s pillowed high while they lie low;
Two arctic beds on which to rest
While I admire winter’s show?

When comes the spring, I wonder if
They’ll lie as cold, as hard, as stiff;
Or if they’ll soften to the earth
In teeming life. I wonder if

Their final song won’t be a dearth
Of usefulness, but one of worth:
For out of death must come rebirth;
For out of death must come rebirth.

Good descriptions and reminders - things aren't always what they appear. Thought provoking.
