A FOREST FULL OF TREES


A FOREST FULL OF TREES

As I entered the rainforest the other day,
Where the trees stood tall and free,
I looked up in amazement,
Since they couldn’t look down on me!
The trees raised their heads and hands,
In a thanks giving gesture to the Gods,
While I stood dwarfed by those trees,
The passing time I forgot!
The trees like silent sentinels, -
Stood steadfast, both tall and free;
Long before we roamed this earth,
The rainforest had its trees!
