The Tree Fell

The tree fell
Without ax to sever bark
Without storm to quake branches
Without water to weaken roots
The tree fell

Only after it lay down
Wide branches blocking, breaking
The road
Instead of shading
Only after it lay down
Did we see the hollowness
The rotten core
That brought it down
