Like Strands of Silver by Raymond A. Foss
Like arms of gray
like strands of silver
braided, and twisting
rising from the ground

The bodies of the supple dancers
their lithe torsos, arms
entwined in the melody
frozen for eternity

In the fabric
the flesh
of the trunk,
the branches,
some cut off

Yet trembling
before the woodman’s ax
change coming
the lovers to be cut down
soon, too soon
in the name of progress

April 5, 2011
maple tree on Broadway Street
Pembroke, NH
a band around it, to be cut down
for the road project
Spring 2011
Silver maple tree out my office window
October 29, 2010 and October 28, 2010
drive from Pembroke to Concord this morning
before the fog burned off
