Sacrificial Tree!

O the pleasure with trees!
The orchard—the forest—the oak, cedar, pine, pekan-
The honey-locust, black-walnut, cottonwood, and mag-

O that of myself, discharging my excrementitious

My voided body, nothing more to me, returning to
the purifications, further offices, eternal uses of
the earth.

These ornaments were made by loved ones for TM & Liam Davy on the occasion of their Hony Moone V.
