Last Walk

soft steps on dew'd detritus
last Fall's leaves; withered humus
tree branches black 'gainst leaden sky
screaming their silent anguished cry
no one hears, no one to care
nature is resting; all is bare
I lie down; a branch for my head
thinking how long 'til I am dead
will they find my bones in spring
bluebells taking food there growing
ivy covered and food for worms
race now run; ended on my terms
sorry for subject thus ruminated
life now over; terminated.
