Last Offering

… That tree was embedded
In the walls and the ceiling.

That, who subscribed its organs
Several times to the rites
Of a lineage.

Great great grandfather perhaps reared,
And worshiped it, his descent
Relished its shades
And multiplex offering.

The great new sons felled it
For the repairs of the old
House.

Yet the tree was happy
To have merged into the family.
