Tree Story

Tuesday morning, walking the dog
We're saddened to see
The first in our region,
Though small of scale, still
A catastro-tree.

A fallen cherry
Petals strewn, 
Sprawled across a lawn, roots out,
A casual-tree of
Monday's wind

Farley wants to offer fluids
Instead we opt
for social distance,
Resuming our trek
Around the block.


Circuit complete
We round a bend
Surprised to find 
Hard at work
A pair of treEMTs

One with shovel 
The other
With stakes
They urgently strive
To tresuscitate.

Three hours pass, now
This news to report:
Blossoms blooming, standing tall
To our great releaf,  
A full trecovery.
