Circular cracks show on its map

Its rivers do not flow, only dried up sap

Mountains rise up and its structure still sure

However, the dying giant has no cure

Grey, empty, hollowed out

Water it cannot go without

It gains new life on a lonely night

when by lightning strike it is set alight

Its ashes nourish

The soil it will encourage

Seedlings sprout from its ground

The extent of life is ever profound
