Thine leaves art wilted, flying to and fro, And thy limbs reach out as if in sorrow. "Dost thou not remember what once was held?” Thy branches crack whilst leaves into dance meld. The moon doth rise as children’s laughter rings. Through the night thy old hollow solemnly sings Of twisted grins and melancholy wolf cries, And how every man thee meet sadly dies. But thy eternal heartbreak shall not wane Thy every breath will be met with pure pain; Death shall not return thee to its icy grip. Forevermore, thou shalt bring people to Death. Until the rope that hangs on thine branch cease, Cursed to be known only as The Hanging Tree.
