-Very nice image
and presentation.
-The notes are appreciated.
-A well written poem
about the situation.
-It's never good to hear
about trees or other
things or people on the
planet being impacted by
a destructive element.
-The imagery is vivid as
you describe the "proud ashes."
-The conclusion rounds
out the poem very well and
shows the impact in natural areas.
-Thanks for sharing.

This Rimas Dissolutas, Chaldea, tells in verse about the sad withering disease that will send the ash tree to the endangered species list. There is no future for this tree I guess.

I really enjoyed reading your botanical observations in this Rimas Dissolutas form. It's always disturbing when trees and plants that are part of the native environment die away because it changes the scene and wildlife. Hope the ashes will make a comeback.

    This affliction doesn't appear to be as drastice as the Dutch Elm Disease of some years ago. That took all the elms. This Chalera seems to be most severe amongst the saplings, but that does not bode well for the future.

    Many thanks for your review.

I must admit your subtitle is almost a dissertation in itself. Rimas Dissolutas? Well who knew?

It looks like a lot like fire blight from the picture.

I like this form very much. There is much drama in reading aloud with the emphasis on the deciduous, conspicuous, indigenous contiguous.

I shall have to look up the reference.

Too bad about the Ash Dieback Disease though.

Much enjoyed.

Gloria

    It is a form that seems to lend itself to feminine endings and polysyllabic rrhyme in the longer lines. There is plenty about the form on the net. I stumbled on it one day when surfing.

Thank you for teaching us about the Chalara fungus and adding alliteration plus rhymes to intensify the description. Poor ash trees--as your picture demonstrates- Joan

Many of our forests are infected by what we call 'dieback' (Phytophthora cinnamomi). It's a huge problem here.

I'm probably right out of order but did you mean 'ruin' rather than 'run' in the following?

Bound to infect the parklands in each town,
and run our rural hedgerows' long expanses.

Cheers
Judy

A rimas WHAT? Sounds like an Italian Regency rake. Fascinating, that you can take such a subject and turn it into a stately and elegant poem - but wait - spring is sprung. You're slyly undercutting your own airs.
We have die-back here, too. It does for tea-tree, some gums and a few garden trees. Some trees survive it, but most don't.

    Something out of the Commedia del' Arte perhaps? No. Actually it is a Potuguese form, adopted enthusiastically by French poets. Many thanks for the review.

    With us the dieback only hits the ash trees -- so far!

A sad rendering, but you put the ashes plight so eloquently. It is a smooth flowing poem, in both though and rhythm. Also, love the artwork you have chosen to illustrate it.

I loved your follow up sentence, as commoner in straightened circumstances. Are you saying an important tree is killing your natural trees? How very sad!


 Comment Written 06-Nov-2019



reply by the author on 07-Nov-2019
    No. It is a fungus called Chalera that we have managed somehow to import from Japan that is damaging our ash trees. It is not concerned with any other type of tree. Our elms were all destroyed years ago by something called Dutch Elm Disease, qwhich was carried by some kind of beettle.

    Thank yo for your sympathetic review.

Very interesting and well written poem about a tree disease that is infecting trees with deadly consequences. Great choice of words and well done rhyme scheme.
