NO ONE WAS THERE TO HEAR

NO ONE WAS THERE TO HEAR 
During hundreds of years 
The tree grew to a mighty size 
As it aged, it would sigh softly 
To teasing breezes 
Passing through it bows 
No one was there to hear. 

Winters and Summers 
Took toll on its strength 
Gradually, it relented 
A storm of storms 
Pressed it to its limits 
No one was there to hear 

Deep within its base 
Something drastic occurred 
Damage was far too great 
It could no longer recover 
It died on the forest floor 
No one was there to hear

I read a tree personified.....

And it is made poignant.
