Dead Trees brave the Wind

They surely have no choice

Bruised and Battered for their Sin

Those Dead Trees have no voice

Cruel Zephyr howls and screams

It never whispers here

It swirles around my Crazy Dreams

It fills my heart with fear

I can't stand in and face the Wind

The way those Dead Trees must

Bruised and Battered for my Sin

I blow away like dust

Dead Trees brave the Wind

Until the day they fall

But even dead upon the ground

They hear the Banshee call

Yes, Duke, this does have a definite metaphysical theme
and is tinged, too, with a sense of mystery
and respect and wonderment in the poet
well conveyed through the right imagery to the reader.

It's good to see you back and posting again.

And still once dead they get used and abused by man & his fireplaces...Hey, hope you had a great Turkey day way up in the wilds of Montana...good to see you dropping by...Ed
