The branch

The branch

Twisted and useless,
Purposeless, sapless
The branch lies at
The cold feet of the
Lady it cannot now
Serve. Pared off,
Stripped of rank
And demoted to
A weak obstruction
In the overflowing
Gutter: a rude toy
For boys' idleness.

No more growth,
No sharing roots,
No mutual twine,
No swaying breeze,
No catching sun,
No hope of leaves.
