who was seen as dying tree

because the paper was everywhere
and snow was falling fast
I was immersed in incidents
all culled from the near past

I shovelled through the detritus
of facts to see
the woman in the medical file
who was seen as dying tree

I understand that illness
is a scourge upon the frame
but surely we can have green boughs
and be wild and not so tame?

I put the papers before me
I strive to understand
the dying process clearly
this tree upon this land
