Burnt Forests of Homeland

by Flight of Maat

Age Group: Adult

Oh barren land, homeland how vaguely I remember your green plumage.
I was then; too young to could have helped,
Too young to could have recorded in memory!
Oh Barrenland, with every step I hear you mourning.

Burnt stumps, corpses of proud pines,
Depleted riverbeds, sun-bleached bones.
Secluded ponds and remaining fountains,
Leaderless deer and orphan mateless hawk.
This is all i see and there is less that can be recalled,
How did you look, mother, before the fire roamed?

Gaia! When will she blossom again?
Touch her she is still screaming!
King Stag! When will you run again?
Sense him he is still weeping!

Out in the moist moonfilled August night,
I cry, i pray, i ask:
"Send me a dream, gift me with Sight,
Of how was this land's forest before the fire!
It is unjust to have been fated to be her sire.
Can the mountain rock break open and become water?
Can the northern wind bend and become fertile gust?"

Gaia, Forest, Hawk and Stag,
They are burnt, hunted and forgotten.
Will they ever hear my prayer of the memory long been theft?
For what will i tell my children about the forest,
When there is no memory left?

Author's Notes: Poetry of mine has been published and protected under copyright. Any unauthorized copy or plagiarizm will be persued accordingly.

Note: This poem is dedicated to the renewal of the burned half of Rhodes Island. It was all green and endless!! It does not rain enough for the new trees to grow and the reckless free grazing of domestic goats does not allow healing.
This island is still beautifull, yet wounded. If you ever come here for holidays pray for the trees.

May Maat guide you!
