Alone In The Woods

Rating: 2.9
Alone in the woods I felt
The bitter hostility of the sky and the trees
Nature has taught her creatures to hate
Man that fusses and fumes
Unquiet man
As the sap rises in the trees
As the sap paints the trees a violent green
So rises the wrath of Nature's creatures
At man
So paints the face of Nature a violent green.
Nature is sick at man

A business man has just cut some trees on a piece of land that is for all. He did it because he doesn't like the mess of leaves which enter his building. I wonder if I should send him this poem?

Man's so called mastery over the latent forces of Nature is often blatantly rejected by the Nature because of man's arrogance, pride and negative temperament which is putting the Nature into great hazard and vulnerability.........very beautifully crafted......full credit.........thanks for sharing
