Your announcement shattered my world today.
We were nearing the end of the walk;
There was a loud crack and the rain began
To fall as we passed General Burr’s apple tree.
So much that old tree has heard and observed
And so much you have missed
It’s easy to believe and almost as easy to forgive
You for mistaking the lightning’s natural destruction of the tree
For your nonchalant destruction of my heart.
