spinning, spinning still

spinning spinning still
cat or possum
curled round tree
fading into absence
spinning still
fading into itself
and soon to be
a skeleton key
round tree
round tree
a greener hearth
you will never see
spinning spinning still
round tumbling leaf
a leaf round you round tree
into the round earth
abandoned sleeping still
curled round young tree
a white hole left
in history
