Nature's Flow

Towering Elm
spreading wide.
Revered by generations.

Our first President!
The aged tree
was limber then.

Gnarled dying branches
holding on--by
one's loving care.

Yet--unyielding time.
The massive trunk
crashing down.

He who cared
followed then. Though
time was patient.

Natures friends
lament its flow. Now,
sunlight warms the earth.
