REDWOODS AT REDWAY, by            
First Line: At redway, lies a massive, fallen tree
Last Line: Until eternity . . . And never die.
Subject(s): Sequoia Trees; Redwoods

At Redway, lies a massive, fallen tree;
For centuries it patiently had stood
A mighty monarch in this neighborhood
Of great Sequoias in a colony.
Alive, half-buried, in black, leafy-mold,
Crushed there, long spent, it thrust forth a new shoot
Which thrived, and burrowing spread sturdy root
Beneath the mother-tree's encircling hold.
When Redwoods crash to earth, ere their demise,
From out gigantic trunks, on forest loam,
Trees start anew. From timbered hosts arise
A stately ship. The rafters of a home.
In dense woods here, a mired log may lie
Until eternity . . . and never die.
