Mourning a Fallen Giant



Whistle at chill sting will fly with grief,
Live trunk beside to remember time’s thief,
Peace you gather, touch, however brief.

      An infuriating modern tendency when starting to build anything on a site is to clear it of everything growing, first. Then it takes years to re-establish what was probably there originally.

    Well done. The live trunk will grow again just as those left behind will gather peace a little at time after the death of a loved one.
