Tree No More


Tree I was
That shed its leaves
In winter to let
Sunshine enter
Your home
To brighten life.

Tree I was
That grew leaves
To provide shade
In hot summer
To cool your home
Providing comfort.

Tree I was
Where birds made
Nests and lived
And you said
How lively it is
This lovely tree.

Yet you forgot all
And didn't hesitate
To cut me and slice
For the timber needed
To build your
Vacation home.

Tree I was
That lived a while
Tree I was
Tree no more.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
