Trees – Trees

Lake with tree reflections -2 signedTrees, trees

Home of the bees,

Home of the seeds,

the buds, 
and the leaves…

Home of a bird, 
a chipmunk, 
a bat…

Trees make their own food, 
but never get fat!!!

They live quite a while,


like a very long time,

Get older than Grandpa,

And Grandma combined!

For tens, 
and hundreds,

and thousands of years,


they give shade to our picnics,

and food to our deer’s…

And all trees make flowers,



and all trees make fruits,



and all trees have trunks,

and all trees have roots…

From bananas

To chestnuts,

To apples,

To plums,

Trees give us good food,

They’re really our chums!

We use sap to make syrup,

and rubber, and fuel,

we use wood to make chairs,



to sit down at school…

But without all your help,


And without your concern,

We won’t have enough trees,

And for trees we will yearn,

Because trees give us things,


That we need to survive,

Like O2 (or oxygen) to breathe,

To live and to thrive…

And trees don’t take much,


for all that they give,

They only need sunlight,


And water to live…


Well maybe some soil,

To hold themselves up,

And maybe some love,

So they don’t get cut up…

Cut down or cut up,

however you view it,

we all need green trees,

so save one, 
just do it!!!

Intriguing, sensitive, mysterious, loving, artistic and crackling with excitement for life is a pretty good description of who I am. I just retired from the world of art where I sold my Artfully Designed Handmade Jewelry for 28 years; although, art will always be a part of whom I am no matter what venue I choose to express it.

  1. Beautiful and light as a feather. Makes me smile and dance. A warning and a celebration, rapped.
