A Victree - Poem by Burt Poole

Yes, only God can make a tree,
but the planting’s left to you and me.
A little sapling, some tiny seeds,
can grow to meet man’s daily needs.
For beauty, shelter, shade and food,
for helping to make the earth’s air good.
A tree’s worthwhile in every part,
from root to limb, from bark to heart.
So, plant a tree, then watch it grow,
and those who follow you will know,
That someone cared and did his best
that he and others might be blessed,
By all the things that trees can give
to help us through the days we live.
The birds, a place to make their nests,
a shady place for man to rest,
And beauty that can help to shield from
ugly things that some men build.
So, for now and for posterity,
as a friend of earth, go plant a tree!
