Rest in peace

Mood: Too much at once...
  
It was with reluctance that we said goodbye to our three poplar trees today. I always cringe when I see a still-living tree go down, especially in today’s climate of necessity, regarding carbon sequestering. In our defense they were old, unhealthy trees and huge hazards: we were surprised and relieved that they didn’t topple during previous ice storms. With our changing weather patterns ice storms are becoming increasingly normal occurrences. I know the robins will be quite upset to lose one of their favorite nesting sites. I, however, am grateful that my garden will now bask in a full morning of sunshine and absolutely love my new unimpeded view of the horses in their pasture. Let the real work begin—tomorrow—there are leaves and branches to clear and there is firewood to cut, split and cure. Thank you my three amigos, you did not die in vain. You may rest in pieces.

Well, I did change 'into' to 'in to' (I looked up the rules for that and saw my mistake). Regarding the lay/lie thing, I gathered that my usage is correct from looking at the link you gave me. I was using the past tense of 'lie', so it should be 'lay'. Also, if I were to change the line to:
'Have I lain in the regolith'
then I would have to change the next line to:
'Have I done what I must?'
While that works, I much prefer the wording I have now.

All business aside, thanks for adding my piece to your favourites! It is indeed my little gift to you.
