“One by one her limbs succumb
to weight of vine and snow. 
Winds blow hard, she cannot bend
her roots let go, she tips, and then . . . 
her lumbering carcass comes to rest 
amongst the rocks and flowers
in the understory of her youth.
Prayerful chipmunks eulogize. 
Mulching worms and micro-organisms 
tenderize what’s left of her. 
Old molecules and rare earth ions 
seek asylum in the rain, penetrate the hairy roots, 
and rise up through the xylem of her progeny.”

— from Dead Wood by Ken Ingham
