Poem For The Day - Earth Day!

Hug A Tree


A tree is not a forgotten thing

It is a being who looks at you and wants to sing

Of the highest love that can be seen

As it goes about the in-between

Of life and toil upon the soil

And signs of spring and everything

That tells us all that life is tall

As the nearest tree that surpasses us all

So go my dears outside to shine

Your love and support for all entwined

With the love of earth and all that stands

 In beautiful promise upon the land.
