Heard a smashing noise ,
A violent slash it was,
Thud ,thud it sounded,
Lo , there was a bang,
A loud squeak emanated,
A sharp shriek was heard,
There was a blast,
A fall ,a collapse resulted,
The beautiful tree came down,
It tumbled flat on the ground,
A sordid sight indeed!
A ghastly scenario really!
A terrible blow truly!
A vicious strike exactly!
Finally a miserable fall absolute.
That which stood royal an hour ago,
Lies down biting the dust poorly now,
That which yielded fruits and nuts,
Is a mound of rubbish at present,
That which gave shade and strength,
Relays a heap of broken twigs now,
That which was a cynosure to all eyes,
Seems like an eyesore now,
That which was a thing of beauty,
Looks like an empty distraction now,
Illustrating the transitoriness,
Underlining the fleeting of life,
Denoting the impermanence,
Yes, anything born has to die.
