ODE TO A TREE
The avocado tree stood giant-like,
In a corner of the old backyard.
Welcoming our new family stoic-like.
Tall and leafy, a healthy sturdy tree.
And in her own time, fruited giant-like.
Fruit to the size of Paradise she gifted.
Pear shaped and shared to neighbours alike.
Sad to say she was cut down without a doubt.
Even a tree old at heart decays, sad-like.
A slice of trunk remains as chopping board,
Emblem of friendship, of a tree giant-like.
