Look At The Trees

entry picture

‘Look at the trees’ she cried,
Kicking up the autumn leaves,

Embrace us in your comforting branches,
Enthrall us with a kaleidoscope of colours,
Engulf us with your sweet perfume,
Delight us with your grace and beauty,
Beguile us with your style and charm,
Caress us with a bouquet of blossoms
Let us forever bloom in your wondrous garden.

 

Suddenly a sea of swirling mist closes in
And threatens to consume us,
We race across a blanket of wet woven grass,
And press our aching bodies
To your virile and protective trunk,
While you stand erect and proud
Under a cool clear night sky,
Reaching for the distant heavens,

‘Look at the trees’ she cried,
‘Look at the trees’.

Any hymn of praise to trees is worthwhile in my
book.
The modern awareness of their importance to life
on this planet is one of the saving graces of
mankind's habitation. If you cut one down, plant
two.
Look at the trees indeed!!
