Does it make a sound?

A tree fell in the swamp last night

I went across and stared

All the creatures were silenced

to see a mighty thing fallen.

Two thoughts occurred to me:

How strong was the wind that blew it down and

Was it weakened by disease?

I didn’t notice it last week or the week before

and I honestly think it meant to slip quietly

back to the earth.
