home

to sway

not storm

-free

branches

rest in

forest

easy days

singularly

together

in tree

resistance

you were

given the

rest for

lunging at

energised

heads

taking

air from

open

mouths

infesting

it with

residue

the dues

a shade

too dark

for

breathing

lungs

so

serious

was the

play in

leaves

they

brought

you down

and green

was bought

and sold

our cry

for future

breath

beauty

died
