time-to-rest

I have stood tall and proud

And gave shelter in my time

But now my bones are broken

Tired, windblown, weather beaten

Empty and broken down

I bow to the earth

To the earth I must return

Great sighs from my spirit as I lower myself ever slowly

To be cradled once more

In the arms of Mother Nature

I gladly return

My work is done

Time to rest
