The Rocking Chair

Small and tiny I poke my head out from underground,
I'm not a mole nor a snake that moves without a sound
No - for I am a redwood tall and proud
As a sapling we were a forest - a vast crowd
But slowly one by one my family all fell
Someday I suppose mankind will take me as well
But for now I'm alone on mountains peak
And though I have neither ear to hear nor mouth to speak
Survival in nature is not for the weak
