Trees thriving in Canberra's spring

An army so poised,
ready to take on the world;
colonists with saws.

All the world’s a stage

Hop jump and step up,

shoulder to shoulder we move—

as dancers, soldiers.

Shrivelling over time,

crippling under the world’s weight—

the ageing, the tree.

an openly gashed 
hollowness, as within you,
lives in nature too
