Plenty More

Where the ash tree stood.

Here once stood
the old ash tree,
just behind the fence.
We still have plenty more
as you can no doubt see.


The Old Ash Tree

It’s sad to see them felling
my neighbours old ash tree,
but the light and space it generates
is almost adequate compensation,
as will be the warmth we get from burning
the wood in our stove this winter.

Early Afternoon

Early afternoon
and half a moon peeps out
between the branches of the ash tree.
