Silver Star - 3,363 Points (Guwahati)


Trees, trees,
Bustling with leaves
Waves at clouds
And dances in the breeze,
They provide a canopy
From the summer heat
A natural retreat
For both men and beast.

Tree, trees,
Hustling with leave
Provide shelter
To birds and bees,
They bring serenity
And heavenly peace
And provide food
To men and beast.

Trees, trees,
Rustling in the breeze
Supplies oxygen
All for free,
Wood and timber
For our daily needs
Trees, trees,
Are great friends indeed.

    Simple and sweet! Yes, trees are man's best friends! Besides spreading a green canopy over the Earth, they give us shade and shelter, flowers and fruits and timber! Besides all these, they are vital for man and animals by providing oxygen! Enjoyed! (Report) Reply
