Returning to Nature

We gather in the wooded place

Familiar faces from long ago


We are reverent, but not solemn

This is a joyful time

Celebrate the life of the matriarch

Remember the traditions she created

Surrounded by a cathedral of trees

Lowered into the Earth by volunteers

Wrapped in only a shroud

Nature will embrace her

Miniature trees are planted to mark the space

The cycle is complete
