A sylvan farewell

Today we’ll say goodbye 
To our neighbor’s lovely eucalyptus, 
Whose long and valiant life 
Has shorn her of her leaves
And ended in a brittle dryness 
That saddens the heart, 
And so the time has come 
 To put her out of her misery. 
How kind of the sunset, 
 To send one last pink cloud to wave goodbye…
